Trash Cleanup Activity for Environmental Challenges
Removing debris and trash from beaches reduces the effects of pollution on our oceans. The objective is to restore our oceans, beaches, rivers, and other aquatic ecosystems. During a beach cleanup, organized by HISWO, volunteers scanned the sand for any debris. Debris can be anything from plastic bags, microplastics, fabrics, or any other kind of litter. Before the high tide comes in, volunteers steered the litter away from the ocean.
Beach cleanup drive of HISWO removed litter from the shoreline and ensured its proper disposal. Microplastics and recyclable materials were found during beach cleanup. Through proper disposal, these materials were transformed into recycled products.
