The Problem

Our wish is to pick all the trash off a beach where fishermen dwell to reduce the harm caused to both the fish and the human community. The garbage was clogging up the ocean, which posed a threat to the underwater life, and we hoped to improve this situation.

Our Plan

We hold this event once a year and return to the same beach to clean up the garbage on the beach. We split into small groups, with one trash bag per group, and hand out gloves. The groups then collect the trash in the bags and carry them uphill, where a garbage truck picks up the bags.
