Keeping Our Sandbox Clean: September Beach Cleanups, Surfrider Foundation

September 4, 2010

The other day I got the privilege of spotting one of my favorite professional surfers ripping at Ala Moana Bowls.  On his way in, he spotted a plastic bag floating in the water and pocketed it before paddling on.  Once on the shore, he did a scan of the beach and  picked up any rubbish that had been littered in the sand.  His actions reminded me that even the simplest of actions can make a big impact.  Here’s a list of the beach cleanups the Surfrider Foundation is sponsoring for the month of September.  Let’s all do our part of keeping our sandbox clean.
