Let’s join a beach clean-up! You can take an action to save the ocean and marine life. Every piece of rubbish removed makes a big difference! Spending your leisure time collecting littered rubbish on the beach can make a positive difference.
Checklist of a beach clean-up
#1: Schedule a day
Schedule a beach clean-up day into your holiday can become a meaningful experience. A sunny or cloudy day is preferable for picking up littered rubbish on the beach. You should avoid rainy and stormy days.
#2: Compostable bags
It would help if you packed several compostable bags in your carry-on. Remember to dispose of the waste properly. You are better to separate the recyclables from the garbage after cleaning up. And place all recyclable waste in different recycling bins properly.
#3: Apply and reapply sunscreen, wear gloves, and drink more water
Staying safe is the top priority. You should wear gloves to clean up the beach and prevent the broken glass bottles hurt you.
Don’t forget to apply and reapply biodegradable and reef-safe sunscreen every 2 hours to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. You can also wear a wide-brimmed hat and a pair of sunglasses.
A beach clean-up can consume lots of your energy. Bring along a handy and refillable water bottle to keep your body hydrated. And take a break to recharge yourself regularly.
