Clearwater Beach FL | Protecting our Beaches
Clean 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)"
In 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:
