About 50 volunteers headed out to the Wedge on Saturday, picking up Styrofoam, cigarette butts and other trash while hundreds of visitors watched the giant waves.
The Wedge Beautification Project was organized by the Balboa Peninsula Point Association, assisted by ZeroTrash Inc., a Laguna Beach-based nonprofit organization dedication to cleaning up the trash in communities. The event was a special project within ZeroTrash’s First Saturday program.
Balboa Peninsula Point Association board member, Jeff Dole, said that the group was raising awareness for their cause just by being there. And, thanks to the waves and all the spectators they attracted, the clean-up crew connected with close to 2,000 people.
