UPDATE: Keeping It Clean in San Francisco

by Karen Shamban

The results are in, and September 15 was a huge success for the organizers of Coastal Cleanup Day - and more important, for our beautiful and unique California coastal environment. 

 Here are some inspiring stats. More than:

  • 1,500 volunteers reported in for duty at the Ocean Beach cleanup location (including 150 Oracle employees and family members)
  • 57,000 volunteers participated statewide
  • 320 tons picked up, including
    • 534,115 pounds of trash
    • 105,816 pounds of recyclable materials 
Remember: KEEP IT CLEAN! You don't have to wait for the annual Coastal Cleanup Day to do your part. The beaches, fish, mammals, birds, and your fellow human beings will thank you.

Join us on September 15, when California's largest volunteer event -- Coastal Cleanup Day -- is taking place. You can help by joining Oracle, Oracle partners, and many others at the Ocean Beach cleanup. 

Be sure to check in at the Oracle table that will be set up there. You'll receive an Oracle t-shirt for participating (while supplies last), and can sign up to receive an emailed code that will get you a complimentary Discover pass* to Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne. And be sure to get yourself into the group photo, which will be shown on the Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne Websites.
