Form a line with us on May 21, 2022 on the beach in Emerald Isle, NC beaches to say NO to fossil fuels and YES to clean energy.
Hands Across the Sand brings locals, vacationers, business owners, town officials and other organizations together in promoting clean energy future across the world, to show support for improved water quality, reducing plastic pollution on our beaches and supporting clean energy to leave our beaches cleaner than when we arrived so that we may enjoy them for generations to come!
Hands Across the Sand / Land, founded by Dave Rauschkolb, a restaurateur from Seaside, Florida in 2010 in the same town Hands grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and to stand against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.
The Emerald Isle chapter will also bring awareness to litter that harms our wildlife, sea-life and that pollutes our waters by having local clubs and affiliations on hand to answer questions and offer literature for those who request it.
