Malama Maui Nui to launch Get the ‘Drift and Bag It!’
KAHULUI — “Get the Drift and Bag It!” is an annual cleanup campaign hosted by Malama Maui Nui in partnership with the Ocean Conservancy that seeks to empower Maui Nui residents in their environmental stewardship of our island community. This year, the campaign will take place from Sept. 19 to Oct. 3.
To participate in this campaign, community members and partners can register for an individual/solo or “Quaranteam” cleanup at MalamaMauiNui.org/GetTheDrift.
Team leaders choose the location, create a disposal plan and contribute data. MMN provides the tools and support needed to make your cleanup a success.
A group cleanup of ten or less people is recommended for members of the same household or workplace. Only “Join a Team” if you’ve been invited by your team leader.
Individual cleanups are recommended for community members at high risk for illness or who prefer an independent activity.
This campaign is held in partnership with Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, which mobilizes communities around the globe to host cleanups, collect litter data and support science-based solutions for a healthy Earth and its oceans. MMN has participated in this initiative for over 30 years.
Participation is free, but donations are encouraged.
Visit MalamaMauiNui.org/GetTheDrift for more information and to register your cleanup.
