A group of volunteers cleaned up Southern California’s coast Saturday as a part of Coastal Cleanup Day 2014, an annual effort that challenges people all over the world to collect and clean trash from local coasts.

About 300 Asian American volunteers from the Pacific American Volunteer Association World Environmental Foundation, or PAVA World, and the Lions Club gathered at the 5 Freeway to lend their hands to cleaning up a four-mile stretch of coast.

Held each year on the first Saturday of September, the cleanup aims to provide a better habitat for animals around the coast.

Robin Pyo, a student at Granite Hills High School, said she’d participated in the annual cleanup for six years.

“Students and parents from all 15 subdivisions around the nation participated in cleanup day this year,” said PAVA World President Wang Deok-jung. “It’s as much about educating children about saving the Earth as it is about cleaning the environment.”
