Yesterday, our team at gogglesoc went down to a local Vancouver beach to clean the shoreline. We managed to pick up 18 lbs of waste! Much of this was cigarette butts, plastic bottles and caps and beer cans. To quote a friendly beach goer, we must leave nothing behind but memories!
To organize your own beach clean-up (or join someone else's), visit shorelinecleanup.ca. Another great way to take action is to download the Save the Waves App, which allows you to report any coastal threats you may see in your area so that the relevant organizations can take action.
