A plastics clean-up crew, on the road from Toronto to Tofino, will make a stop in Kelowna on Saturday.

Members of Parley for the Oceans invite locals to help pluck plastics from the waters around City Park between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The organization has a goal of collecting plastics from 850,000 square metres of shoreline in Canada this summer.

Similar beach clean-ups have happened or are planned for a total of 50 Canadian beaches along rivers, lakes, and oceans.

"It's our way of helping to fight the plastics pollution epidemic," says Hans Schippers of Parley for the Oceans.

Canada has more shoreline than any other country, and it accounts for 60 per cent of the world's lakes.
