Sea Plastic Pledge COVID-19 Relief

$2,183 Total Raised

Welcome! This June 2020 Sea Plastic Pledge campaign program is focused on providing relief to those impacted by COVID-19 in the Greater Philadelphia Area. All funds raised will be donated to the Montco PA COVID-19 Response Fund and the Colonial Neighborhood Council.

Sea Plastic Pledge is a movement aimed at increasing awareness around the ocean sustainability crisis we face as a global community today, and expanding mindfulness toward conservation as we go about our daily lives. Clean-up campaigns focused on removing plastic litter from our environment have been used to raise money for charitable causes both nationally and internationally since 2018.

How It Works: A campaign will run in conjunction with the annual Conshohocken Arts Festival and Car Show - held virtually this year - which will kick off Saturday, June 6, 2020 and run the full month of June. The clean-up will take place from June 6th to June 28th, with totals announced as the Festival comes to a close. Donation pledges are made per “piece” of plastic litter gathered from community streets, trails, beaches, etc. As an example, if an individual pledges $0.05 per piece of plastic and 1000 pieces (e.g., a plastic bag, Styrofoam fragment, water bottle, etc.) are collected during the clean-up, their pledge will generate a $50.00 donation. Flat donations are accepted as well.

How You Can Support: Supporters can promote the event in three main ways: (1) spreading the word and sharing webpages for the Conshohocken Arts Festival and this campaign program, (2) making a tax- deductible monetary pledge/donation via a clean-up campaign, and (3) organizing a clean-up campaign by selecting the “Create Your Campaign” link on this page. For anyone running a clean-up of their own, we ask that group size be limited to immediate household members and all CDC guidelines be followed!

Thank you for engaging in conscious efforts to promote global sustainability and provide financial aid to those impacted by COVID-19.
