Mermaid Cottages Is Proud To Clean Up With Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers

the logo for the tybee clean beach volunteers on tybee island gaMermaid Cottages is proud to clean up with Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers.  The Mermaids have been a part of this cleaning effort since it’s inception in 2016 and Head Mermaid Diane was one of the founding members, too.

Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers is a grass-roots organization made up of local volunteers who sweep Tybee’s beaches free of trash on a regular basis.  The group recycles or reuses as much of the recovered debris as possible much like our Mermaids do as a part of our cottages management plans.

Most beach cleanups are on Sunday afternoons, but sometimes additional cleanings are necessary due to weather or holidays or special event dates that result in extra debris buildup.

Mermaid Cottages’ guests are always invited to volunteer during their visits, so be sure to check our App, the event calendar on our website, our social media and the Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers calendar, as well.  Dates, time and locations may change according to the needs of our three mile stretch of beaches.

96% of the Top Ten is made of plastic, including cigarette filters and Styrofoam – Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers

It you’re planning to join us, report to the announced meeting location and look for the Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers banner.  Just pick up a bucket and a trash grabber and hit the beach for as long as you like! When you’re finished, simply leave the full bucket and grabber by the cart so we can sort and recycle as much of the trash as possible.

Our next scheduled beach cleanups are:

Sunday, November 25th @4 PM. Meet in front of Marine Science Center, parking passes available at sign-in table
Sunday, December 9th @4 PM, location to be announced

Vacation with a purpose.  Be a Tybee Clean Beach Volunteer when you visit Mermaid Cottages and Tybee Island!

Here are six reasons to fall in love with Tybee Island this October.  Mild, sunny days and even milder nights make for just the right time to explore our little barrier island.  You’ll enjoy less traffic, fewer crowds and plenty to see and to eat and to do around here.  Plan a Momcation, a Sistercation, or gather up the old gang for a stay in one of our vintage or historic cottages for a Big Chill high school or college reunion.  A lot can be said for solo getaways, too, especially when you pack your wags for a much needed Wellcation to just unplug with your dog.
