For Cleaner Beaches
Did you know that millions of tons of plastic bottles, trash and pollutants are dumped into the ocean each year by people all over the world? Ocean pollution is an issue we all need to be concerned with. It affects the health and safety of our environment and marine life. Everyone who visits beaches or inland waterways can do their part by throwing trash and recyclables in the appropriate containers.
Besides individual efforts, there are some companies committed to cleaning up oceans in innovative ways. Norton Point, nortonpoint.com/pages/about-us, has created a line of sunglasses made with salvaged ocean plastic and plant-based materials. Each pair of sunglasses represents 1 pound of plastic removed from the ocean.
Another company, 4Ocean, https://4ocean.com/pages/our-clean-ups, specializes in offshore and coastal beach cleanup. Picking up your trash after a day at the beach prevents polluting items from entering the ocean. If you’re going to the beach this summer, you can do your part by encouraging friends and family to keep our environment clean.
