Sustainable Coastlines Hawai‘i, in partnership with Surfrider Foundation and Hokuala Resorts put together a heck of a beach cleanup in one of Kaua‘i’s most beautiful spots. About 200 people — including 20 from O‘ahu — joined efforts to clean up Unulau Bay, around the corner from Nawiliwili Harbor.

The beach at this small and secluded bay was littered with plastic, likely from places thousands of miles away. The volunteers were shuttled in school buses from Kalapaki Bay to the harbor, where boats took them around the bend to Unulau. When they came back to Kalapaki, they were greeted to a lot of pizza, Tamba shave ice and a concert by Sashamon.
