When the tide rises, it carries things on the beach back into the ocean.
Unfortunately, this includes coastal trash, most of which will go on to stay in the ocean for decades, even centuries.
That's why we give our coast a cleanup
every once in a while.
About 10 times during the year, Seaside Sustainability—along with its many other partners—collaborate to clean up our coast. Thanks to these efforts, a lot of trash ends up where it belongs instead of in the ocean.
Also, we understand the importance of removing debris already in the ocean, so we added boats to the team. Over the years, this has proven to be a success. We have collected items such as lobster traps and fishing gear, which can be harmful to the marine ecosystem if left unattended in the water.
When the team leaves, our seabins are still there to collect floating debris. To learn more, go to the Clean Harbor Initiative page.
