Champion surfer Kai Lenny and adventure filmmaker Alison Teal would like to see the first ever statewide beach clean-up in Hawaii on March 25 to March 31 in Oahu especially in Kauai, the Big Island, Maui, Lanai, and Molokai, reports say. The Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and The 5 Gyres Institute have announced the clean-up event and would like to "inspire local communities to care for their coastlines through hands-on beach cleanups."

The groups said they're attempting to do something gnarly at the moment and were happy to know that none other than famed surfer Lenny would join the project.

The initiative would have prioritized Hawaii's "dirtiest beaches" to educate people in keeping their coastlines clean. There is to attempt a "crazy" Hawaii cleanup in one week and invites locals, visitors and even tourists to join their campaign against pollution. According to Travel and Leisure, Lenny is doing it "to protect his home state's beloved beaches."

Cigarette butts, plastics, and styrofoams are among the most common littered items in Hawaii, Huffingpost reports. In 2015 alone, there were about 5,000 cigarette butts, 3,426 pieces of plastic and 1,386 pieces of foam collected at the beaches of Oahu, Kauai, and Big Island. At the same time, it had authorities driven to create a bill that would protect Hawaii's beaches from getting dirtied.

On February 25 this year, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and the Wanderlust Festival also cleaned up Oahu's most polluted coastline but would like to continue doing it as it proves to be followed up.

Lenny will visit each channel of the Hawaiian Islands with stops and cleanups around Hawaii's dirtiest beaches to raise awareness on the issue of the beaches and prevent plastics from entering the ocean.
