We pick up trash at least once a week that has washed up or is exposed at low tide on the local beaches around Puget Sound. We reuse plastic shopping bags and recycle the trash picked up. Although our efforts are a "drop in the bucket" in comparison to the trash found in the world's oceans, we hope that others will do the same at their local beaches. Even if only one bird or fish or other marine wildlife is saved by our efforts, it is worth it to us. Additionally, we are cleaning up the beach and eliminating trash from accumulating. We started this project in December of 2015. It will never end for us.
