Beach Cleanups


We LOVE Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio- so we adopted it in 2010!

Since 2010, we have partnered with some great people and organizations to host monthly beach cleanups rain or shine. Join us as a volunteer for a few hours April-September to help keep our Great Lake Erie GREAT! What we do in our here matters everywhere because water (and pollution) have no boundaries. Your hands are a really big help!

Drink Local. Drink Tap., Inc. ™ became a member of Alliance for the Great Lakes to create a strong beach cleanup crew. Special DLDT cleanup events throughout the year are sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Co. and our generous donors.
