The Bogue Banks, North Carolina Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation covers the area from Bogue Inlet on the west to Beaufort Inlet on the east. We have a dedicated community of surfers and local businesses that can truly make a difference in teaching our youth to take care of our beaches and carrying forward our mission of keeping our beaches clean for years to come.

Here are some of our plans for pushing forward with this foundation; really making a difference in our community and hopefully encouraging others to do the same.

- Creating awareness and educating both our residents and tourists of the importance of protecting our beaches and that it is never ok to leave cigarette butts or trash behind (perhaps via bumper-stickers, etc.)

- Creating and posting signs that explain the penalties for littering as there are currently none on our beaches

- Properly labeling the unlabeled blue recycling receptacles on our beaches so that people are aware that they may recycle and to keep trash out of the recycling receptacles and in the trash cans

- Hosting periodic beach sweeps / cleanups

- Working to encourage the beach patrol to step up their efforts in fining littering beach goers

- Placing cigarette receptacles located on the pier

- Getting anti- littering message on electronic highway sign

- Putting up anti- littering banners on hwy 24/58 intersection

- Involving schools in our mission (educating our youth)

- Ban the bag (anti plastic bag campaign)
