Pennsylvania Sea Grant works along many Pennsylvania waterfronts to improve the environment and the quality of life by helping to organize community-driven coastal clean-ups and “stamp-out litter” programs. Litter, graffiti, and crime often go hand in hand and stewardship projects and education are key to changing behaviors towards community spaces. To date, Pennsylvania Sea Grant has helped marinas to transform 123,748 pounds of plastic boat shrink-wrap (collected from 24 marinas) into guardrails and other products. Each year Pennsylvania Sea Grant works with the Pennsylvania DCNR and volunteers from the Deloitte Financial Services to collect and recycle more than 3,000 pounds of debris from Little Tinicum Island in the Delaware River. We also help with a number of community clean-ups in the City of Chester.
