Think Like It's 1620 Challenge

In July 2020, the Center for Coastal Studies is promoting the international Plastic Free July campaign, and has partnered with CARE for the Cape and Islands to put together a Cape-Wide Remote Beach Cleanup. We invite all to join Take Care Cape Cod on July 31st, for a “Think Like It’s 1620” Remote Beach Cleanup at the culmination of this month-long Plastic Free awareness campaign!



Volunteers are invited to find a beach or other location in their community to clean up for at least 16 minutes and 20 seconds. We are asking everyone to sign up for a specific location ahead of time to allow for social distancing and to ensure that we cover as much of the Cape as possible. To register or for additional information, please visit the event page.

For questions contact


Donations of $16.20 or more to support a water filling station at Pilgrim Monument are gratefully appreciated.


Please help to spread the word and make this the biggest cleanup yet!
