About the Coastal Cleanup Crew:

Our goal is to protect our oceans from plastic pollution. A direct way we can do this is by conducting roadside litter cleanups, that could enter drains and then the ocean. Or riverside cleanups, removing the rubbish from the source of the waterway, that leads towards to ocean. Or ideally, ocean/ coastal cleanups to remove the immediate pollution. All the while, hoping that our actions are spreading awareness to observers who can join in and help.
