One Man Beach Clean Up in Maine

Thanks to Harold in Maine for sharing his project with Protect the Ocean. Make sure to visit his blog!

Once a week I troll two sections of my local beach, picking up any and all man-made bits of flotsam & trash that I find. One section is busier in-season; the other section is farther away from the crowds. I clean, catalog, and report on what’s there in my blog. Along the way, if something pops out, I learn about it, and share what I’ve discovered.

And what I’ve discovered is that even in quiet, serene southern Maine there is a ghastly marine plastic pollution problem.

It’s such a beautiful world. It should stay that way. Hopefully I’m doing my small part to bring awareness & help out.
