September 20th is International Coastal Cleanup Day 2008. While it is a little late to join in on the activities today, there are many ways in which we can help keep the coasts and oceans clean every day of the year. If we keep the oceans clean, there won’t be so much trash washing up on shore and pulluting and destroying our beaches.
Many areas have organized cleanup days throughout the year. Check out the beaches in your area to see if there are any cleanup groups, if not, START ONE!
