To maintain cleanliness as well as to manage the beach, a Beach Management Committee has also been formed. In accordance with this year's World Environment Day theme ''Beat Plastic Pollution", a beach cleaning activity was conducted on June 2, 2018 at Shivrajpur beach, wherein around 350 volunteers joined hands to clean the beach. Local authorities, officials from Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Government of India, SICOM, Dr. Ashok Kumar Saxena, IFS Member Secretary, Gujarat Ecology Commission and other officials from GEC joined the beach cleaning activity.
