First Annual Ocean’s Coastal Cleanup Results

Last Saturday I hosted my  first ever Coastal Cleanup. I been wanting to host one for a while now. I left it simmering on the back burner.But I think I made this happen at a perfect time.  Lately, I been asking myself, “people do so much to take care of their body and their families bodies, keep them healthy.But we don’t do much to help keep another important body clean, the ocean.

This thought came to me because of my nephew, Ethan Ocean. I try to share my knowledge and teach him as much as i can. I have this tiny ocean that will grow and become a bigger ocean. I want to teach Ocean how to keep the worlds ocean clean and beautiful as i know one day he will be. And so i thought it would be great to create the event on the day of my nephew, Ocean’s birthday.

I had the honor to have a group of Girls Scouts attend the event. I was happy to have them, their leader, parents join this important cause. I started the cleanup by teaching the girls about why it’s important to keep trash from going into our oceans. Since they live inland, they wondered how trash residing inland travels to the ocean. I was more than welcome to break it down and show them how.

Overall, this event was a success. I was happy to not only see the Girl Scouts and their parents there. But also have my family and friends there as well.

As for me. I am looking forward to next year’s event.

Here are the results of our cleanup:

It’s important that we starts opening our eyes and taking the first step in helping maintain this earth clean as possible. I’m not one to sweet coat anything. I am going to be straightforward with you. We are getting close to our doomsday. And no. I wont point fingers and judge. It’s not our fault. Our own home, the U.S.A. isn’t helping. Laws that can help us eliminate our plastic consumption aren’t passed. Oil Comapanies are living the life. Money. Money. Money. It always wins. Please let this post make you take a step back and see how much trash(plastic) we are throwing away and wont get recycled. We are leaving this mess for our future generation to suffer in. But who knows. Maybe they won’t have the opportunity to grown up. Two words: Global Warming.
