Yesterday we took part in the International Coastal Cleanup. We participate in this event each year. We did our cleanup in Daytona Beach Shores, on the beach. We walked the length of four buildings and we collectively pickedup nine pounds of trash!
Spending an hour picking up trash, so much of it in such a short distance, it is sad to see how so many people are not responsible. So many cigarette butts, bottle caps, bottles, food containers and wrappers, and bits of plastic were on the beach.
We participated in this event yesterday, but picking up trash (whether at the beach or anywhere in nature) is something we do regularly.
