Urban communities are vital to the health of our one world Ocean and keeping our community litter free and chemical free is hard work. Everything goes down hill when we have flash flooding, or high winds. Finally, litter ending up in street drains, urban streams, rivers, or lakes all end up flowing to the ocean over time depending on how far from the ocean you live.
Most importantly, creating local community cleanups is a great way to teach youth the importance of healthy communities and clean water projects. Lastly, the more ocean plastic we can remove depends on volunteers like you!
