We love to see when a community can come together for one main, important mission: to help clean the beach! That is exactly what happened in Araranguá, Brazil. Volunteers focused their efforts on the coastline, pier, and grassy area surrounding Morros dos Conventos in Santa Catarina to help out their local beach.
After a chilly morning of cleaning, each volunteer returned with a hemp bag filled with trash. Altogether, everyone was able to collect around 220 pounds of trash! We are so proud of everyone who came out to help make a difference! Most of the trash that was found were all various plastics. This acts as a reminder just how problematic plastic pollution can be in our environment. Check out the video below to watch how the day went!
