Best Beaches in America to Visit on Coastal Cleanup Day
by Richard Arterbury
Coastal Beaches are stunning places to visit all year. Now, you can learn how to take care of our beaches and the marine animals we love so much. You find your favorite beach and help remove microplastic or clean a sea turtle nesting beach. You can share your passion with Ocean Blue. Microplastics are everywhere in our ocean and with your help we can save our Ocean.
The salty ocean is the ultimate playground for about anyone who enjoys the wild nature of the outdoors filled with beach nourishment with new adventures from coral sands, sand dunes, and tidepools to marine wildlife. All of this makes beaches the excellent break spot for your place to recharge or just to get to know yourself.
However, our oceans are in danger of plastic bags near beaches or a state park or national park or other locations near the barrier islands. Our ocean need your attention to help lower the threats of plastic pollution harming our shores and seas.
What Ocean Blue, the Ocean Cleanup Organization, is just researching the most polluted locations where you may be spending your vacations during your time off. This has helped our team learn more about the perfect locations to host beach cleanups that make larger impacts. Plastic travels in our Ocean Currents and Surface Currents of our 5 Oceans and floats right over our coral reefs.
How to Save The Ocean from Pollution
The Ocean is at a large risk of being over consumed by plastic which places all of us at risk to the present environment. What we can do is help where we can to protect marine life and save our beaches or gulf coast while doing so. Support the coastal cleanup day with Boxed Water and Ocean Blue Project.
How to Save The Ocean from Pollution
1. Be Aware of our own trash and secure it (PROPERLY)
Be sure to recycle any plastics and bottles in a utilized dispensing bin with the correct matched bin.
2. Modify your packaging and utilization of disposable packaging
Why not switch to an eco-friendly option over cheap and bad for the environment and ocean packaging? At Ocean Blue, we often find ourselves using the leftover packaging we find at the post office recycling bins. Much of what we are removing from beach cleanups and our shores is leftover packaging littering the shores that blow in the winds down the rivers and into our ocean.
3. Feed yourself not the wildlife animals
Composting is vital to lowering greenhouse gases and to help make rich soils for growing foods at a later date. The birds and fishes are also sharing our coastal shores and beaches with you and me. Don’t disrupt the diets of the animals, like gulls, fishes of our sea, or even threatened birds like the snowy plover that share beaches on the west coast.
4. Cut the six pack rings
If you find the plastic six pack rings in the environment or anything round that is made of plastic cut it up so it doesn’t tangle our marine wildlife animals that can get caught in the holes or plastic rings. Be sure to cut your disposable coronavirus mask strings to keep animals safe in the wild.
5. Give Back At The Next Local Cleanup
Clean up If you reside close to a beach, an urban stream, or wild river that is close to a neighborhood. This will help gain volunteers to help make larger impact. Ocean Cleanup Volunteers have a tendency to create your own beach cleanups. Ocean Blue is helping others to make this possible and obtaining approvals that help make this all possible.
6. Create A Ocean Cleanup with Ocean Blue Near You
If you just love cleanups and enjoy taking charge go a step further and take a beach or river underneath your wings. As a company, community member, or group, you and other beach lovers can adopt a neighborhood urban stream or beach where you enjoy going to a few times per year and would like to frequently maintain or pack up the beach litter.
7. Contact your local representative or mayor.
