To Help Clean Up Our Beaches and Wetlands.
Our coast is sick!
Harmful impacts like plastic bags, plastic bottle caps, styrofoam, old fishing line, cigarette butts, and food wrappers are taking its toll on coastal biodiversity.
Let’s face it, dolphins or whales don’t pollute the ocean, neither do ospreys or bald eagles. The human species in the only species that causes wide-spread and never-ending pollution. Trash on our beaches , wetlands, coastline or in the water kills more than one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles each year worldwide through ingestion and entanglement.* Some of the debris that causes entanglement or had been ingested includes plastic bags, fishing line, fishing nets, six-pack holders, string from balloons or kites, glass bottles and cans
“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.”
– Jacques Yves Cousteau
But the news is not all bad. Many people, communities, businesses, and organizations from around the world are joining together to clean up our coastlines and watersheds.
Let's Make Trash Extinct!
