Have you heard of the International Coastal Cleanup? It happens every year in September and is the largest global volunteer day in service to our lakes, oceans, and rivers. Each year, approximately 600,000 people worldwide dedicate time to cleaning up their local waterways. The catch is that they record every single piece of trash collected! The results are then sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).
