ECOSLO cleans up Japan tsunami debris at Montana de Oro

ECOSLO is cleaning up debris washed up from the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011.

They had their fourth and last beach cleanup on Saturday morning.

Their goal is to collect data about debris from the tsunami. So far, they say only plastic bottles have reached San Luis Obispo shores from Japan, but bigger things like soccer balls and boats have hit elsewhere in California.

"It seems like the world's eyes are sort of on us right now," ECOSLO Program Coordinator Michael Heater said. "Everyone wants to know what sort of affects a Tsunami has to the country of Japan and also to the United States."

To keep with the environmentally friendly theme, ECOSLO asked volunteers to bring their own reusable cleanup supplies.
