Organise your own beach clean-up!
Teach your kids about the importance of taking care of the planet and follow it up by putting your words into action with a fun activity. Don some protective gloves, pack the essentials and embark on your own beach cleaning adventure. If you prefer to work in a group, however, keep an eye out for updates on local clean-up pages – bigger beach clean-ups happen pretty often, so take note and join in on the experience.
