Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and the perfect day to begin a two-week community clean-up.  With six months of activity-restricting, hope pummeling COVID 19 behind us, why not apply that bottled-up energy to making our days brighter… and cleaner! 

 Emerald Keepers is calling on all community groups — service clubs, churches, scouts, student clubs, classrooms, and any other form of Coronado social group – to commit to cleaning their neighborhoods and public areas.  From ocean to bay, the Cays to North Island, lend a hand to CAN THE TRASH, September 7th to 21st. The collective impact of litter accumulating in Coronado (e.g., take-out disposables, single-use plastics, disposable masks and other PPE) from both on-island activities has taken a toll on our neighborhoods, parks, beaches, parking lots, and medians.

Individual participants are asked to send photos of their trash pick-up via email to to be entered into a drawing to be held Friday, September 25th.  Emerald Keepers will give away sustainable products and local businesses gift certificates. All photos are due by midnight, September 21st. A list of prizes will soon be on Emerald Keepers website,
