DesBorder Cleanup Project

Friday, July 5, 2024 - 9:00am to 1:00pm

Seeking Sponsors: help us build our recycled whale

Join us on July 5, 2024 for a World Design Capital endorsed event. DesBorder: Together for a Cleaner Environment is a cross-border, community cleanup, with a twist, located at Veterans Plaza in Ocean Beach. 

  • A whale sculpture, made from repurposed materials, will be used to collect cans and plastic bottles will be the heart of the first cleanup in OB.
  • Our whale will migrate to neighboring coastal community cleanup events throughout the year.
  • DesBorder will encourage our youth groups and schools to participate in art-making and educational activities promoting environmental awareness.
  • All CRV collected in the whale will be donated to Cans4Books to provide free and accessible children’s books to San Diego communities.

Sign up at to join in on the cleanup.

Currently seeking donations and sponsorships to help us build our whale sculpture. By becoming a founding whale sponsor you will get your name etched onto the sculpture, 2 entries into our “name the whale” contest, logo/name on our website and all social media, and your logo on a thank you banner at the event.

Do you have an idea for a give-away, prize, or have something other way you'd like to participate? Learn more, sign up, sponsor, donate at or email [email protected]
