Clearwater Beach FL | Clean Beach Council Promotes Beautiful Blue Beaches

Clearwater Beach FL | Protecting our Beaches

clean beaches councilClean Beaches Council is a not-for-profit organization that has been around since 1998 pioneering America's first environmental certification program for our beach - the Blue Wave Campaign.

The Blue Wave Campaign's goal is to promote public awareness and a community partnership that involves a voluntary pledge and voluntary participation towards taking care of our beach along with responsible beach management.     

In Tampa Bay Florida and especially on Clearwater Beach, tourism is our major industry and plays a vital role to our local economy. We're not alone, the Clean Beaches Council explains that our United States beaches and coastal areas "offer unique recreation, support maritime commerce and provide jobs for coastal communities.   In fact, beach tourism contributes over $640 billion annually to the US Economy (85% of all tourist revenue)"   

clean beaches in pinellas county awarded the blue wave designationIn the last 10 years there have been over 20,000 health advisories issued relating to water quality in the United States and here in the Tampa Bay area we are only too familiar with the additional impacts of storms and new construction on Pinellas County beach erosion.  Every year miles of beaches are lost to beach erosion.

We've loved living on our beautiful Pinellas Gulf beaches and we've also seen many changes over the last 18 years. With more properties on the beaches and more people visiting our beaches it takes even more effort to ensure that we embrace "low impact" living and work to ensure sustainable beaches. 

I believe now is the time to commit to working together: Pinellas County government + Our Beach Communities + National Parks + Residents + Tourist to preserve our local economy and more importantly for our kids - YOU and the Blue Wave Campaign can help!  In other articles we detailed the:

Taking care of the beaches is very important especially in an area were the economy  depends on tourism.  It is also important for us to take care of the environment, there is nothing more troubling than listening to beach closures due to contamination.

Cyndee, another great eco-friendly post from the Clearwater, FL experts!

Jennifer - thank you for stopping by - I agree it's paramount to protect our natural resources and to the best of my knowledge - they're not making any more oceans or beaches :-) and the same holds true for our rivers, lakes, mountains, forests and more.

Hi Cyndee,  Leave no trace is one of our hiking mottos and I saw you used it in one of your posts about the beach.  It is a good way to think as the world gets more crowded and stressed.  Thanks for another wonderful post from Clearwater Beach!

Cyndee,

20,000 advisories?  That statistic itself shows we all need to work to keep our resources cleaner!  I hope more beach communities will join Clearwater to work to keep their beaches clean.

Cyndee - great information about keeping Clearwater Beaches clean! I remember visiting Galveston Beach in TX as a child every year and it is important that we keep these natural resources clean and safe for our children to enjoy as well.
Posted by Ashley Drake Gephart (Drake Intel Group) about 11 years ago
Cyndee - Glad to see they are still doing this up there! I used to live in Pinellas and remember all of the local efforts to keep the area clean! Hats off to everyone who participates and to you for posting this information!

Cyndee, Clean Beaches Council sounds like an amazing organization for Clearwater Beach FL.  It shows the "pride of ownership" of all the residents.

Awesome Cyndee!!  Leave it to you to find so many other eco-friendly posts!!  You've really  inspired me to get to work on something "else" Eco-friendly.

Oregon has a couple beach clean up weekends... not only are they great for the environment - but they can be a lot of fun if you participate -

Joanne - Living in as beautiful place as you do - it would take no time to lose our treasures with a little trash from everyone - we all have to pitch in to keep it clean and healthy 
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) about 11 years ago
Rita - let me be clear 20,000 advisories is nationwide - not all here! (LOL) but still that's 2000 a year - not good!  
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) about 11 years ago
Ashley - I love Galveston too - I used to live outside Houston Tx - they don't compare (ok I'm partial) but just as important to protect them all!

Bill & Barbara - thanks for stopping by as always it's great to have our "neighbors" visit.

Stephanie - it does show pride of ownership and also I think it breeds it - our kids grow up learning to take care of it.

Thesa - will I ever quit learning new things about Oregon - it is truly an amazing place. Gotta admit when I think beaches I haven't ever thought Oregon - but I will now.

Cyndee~ 

I grew up visiting my grandparents on the beautiful beaches you mention in your post. It makes me SO happy to hear that stewardship of those beaches is in-the works. Thanks for sharing this news.

Cyndee ~ Great post on keeping our beaches in Tampa Bay and Clearwater as gorgeous as they can be!  I personally go to the beach almost every weekend and hate to see anything but the amazing Gulf views.  I will do anything I can to keep our precious beaches in their best condition.  Thanks for a great post and the Green friendly mention!
