OUR STORY

CBCO Lido was founded in 2008 by Coral, Brooke, Clark, and Orion Newby of Lido Beach, New York to help keep Lido Beach clean.
We live here and play here and we noticed that there was garbage washed up on the beach and in the dunes, so we decided to help clean it up.
In 2019, along with the American Littoral Society, we proudly hosted our 11th Annual Lido Beach chapter Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Cleanup.
