2015 Commemorative T-shirt

Volunteers will receive a free commemorative T-shirt* made from "Ecospun" recycled plastic (polyester fiber) and cotton. This unique process used to produce our commemorative short-sleeve shirts is another example of Baynanza helping to reduce and reuse.

The T-shirt design was selected from thousands of entries from Miami-Dade County students who participated in the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden Challenge. This year's T-shirt is based on the winning design by Tristian Gude, a 5th grade student from Air Base K-8 Center in Homestead.

We would like to recognize the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden staff for organizing and hosting the Baynanza 2015 T-shirt design contest.

*T-shirts are available for registered Cleanup Day volunteers at each site (adult sizes only; size preference subject to availability). Recycled plastic fiber is used only on the short-sleeve shirts. Long-sleeved shirts are made out of 50% cotton and 50% polyester.

The early 1980s marked the beginning of a monumental effort by Miami-Dade County to save Biscayne Bay. The Bay was suffering from pollution and the marine environment of the Bay was in steep decline. Baynanza was created as part of a larger effort to save the bay.

Baynanza is a celebration of Biscayne Bay and its significance as one of our most important ecological systems in South Florida. While Baynanza includes more than 35 great events throughout March and April, the event that has become nearly synonymous with this celebration is the Biscayne Bay Cleanup Day.

In April 2014, this community event drew more than 6,100 volunteers, who collectively removed more than 45 tons of garbage from our shores.
