As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness, Soapy Joe’s is proudly hosting its first beach cleanup on April 15th at Imperial Beach. Come on out and spend some time in the sun, while doing a good thing for our coastline and community!
Pollution from Tijuana has long plagued San Diego’s beach communities, Imperial Beach often receiving the worst of the impacts. A February 2017 incident was the largest raw sewage spill – 143 million gallons – in the Tijuana River in more than a decade. Since then, there have been five additional spills from Mexico, with no federal or state emergency clean-up effort despite ill residents and dead wildlife.
Hosting a beach cleanup is our way of bringing everyone together to make a difference and supporting the local groups that are working so tirelessly to keep San Diego’s beaches beautiful.
We'll have booths with fun exhibits, and will raffle off an Annual Magic Potion Car Wash membership!
