Worried about plastic in the ocean? Then get off your rumpus this weekend and do something about it!
It’s International Coastal Cleanup Day this Saturday, September 20. You and a trash bag and a bunch of your friends can spend a day at the beach making it trash free. Because believe you me, right now that beach has plastic on it. These events are going on all around the world and The Ocean Conservancy has a great map that can help you find an event in your neck of the woods (if you live near the beach,
Nebraska can just ignore me or near a lake in Nebraska).
I am also loving their DIY cleanup kit instructions, which I will be doing this weekend. If you can’t go out to a beach, consider either reducing your plastic consumption, donating to an organization that is trying to reduce ocean plastic or even just chasing a flying plastic bag down a city street and placing it in a recycling bin (I’ve never done that…goes and hugs a tree). Every little bit helps.
