Community Partnerships

Hotheads Hairbrushes are proud to support a cause that nationally empowers communities to help keep shorelines clean called the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Started in 1994, the cleanup established when volunteers and employees from the Vancouver Aquarium came together to clean up a beach in Stanley Park, Vancouver. Fast Track to 2003, the program has more than 20000+ volunteers taking part, with support growing as people became more aware of the harmful effects of shoreline litter on ecosystems, wildlife and people.

 Founders of Hotheads Hairbrushes, Patti & Michael Coyne, are part of this national network of cleanup volunteers and took part in cleaning up Mud Creek Fall 2016 in their home city Toronto, Ontario. Michael and Patti have decided to spread the word about the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup www.shorelinecleanup.ca. Please view this website for more information on how easy it can be to lead a cleanup in your area, as well as enjoy the beauty of our shorelines, anywhere land connects to water.






 Sept 2018

Another day out at the beach with the GREAT CANADIAN SHORELINE CLEANUP. This was one busy day with a GREAT turn out. there must have been 60 people the best turn out yet. Thanks to the organizers, the Loblaws group (Our fav store) and the U of T plus many we did not meet. the day recovered 305 KG of trash form Cherry beach. 

This is one of the days in December when Patti and I just get a quit moment at the beach and clean up. The best pickin's is in Nov,Dec and Jan. when there"s NO SNOW. and NO people.
