It’s Not Too Late to Save Our Environment!

DonateNowWhether you live Santee or Ocean Beach, Oceanside or Chula Vista, you can preserve the San Diego way of life we all know and love just by donating to I Love A Clean San Diego today!

For almost 60 years ILACSD has been leading the charge to protect our environment. Your donation will make an immediate difference right here in San Diego through:

  • Countywide Cleanup Events: We’re most known for our beach cleanups, but we actually coordinate events all over San Diego County because we know that 80% of trash in the ocean comes from inland sources.
  • Environmental Education: Picking up trash is definitely important, but we take it a step further and prevent litter before it happens by educating youth and adults about recycling, litter prevention, and how we are all connected through our watershed system.
  • Recycling Resources: We run the County’s only comprehensive recycling database an hotline,, providing a resource for residents to dispose of things in their house that shouldn’t go in the trash through our one stop recycling resource, which prevents them from being dumped illegally in your neighborhood.

As you can imagine, all of these things take time and resources, which in turn cost money. As a non-profit organization, we rely on donors like you to help us continue to provide these programs and reach out to new communities. Check out this great video by our staff that shows just a few of the things that you can help us with by donating today:
