It's Sunny, Go Surf! And Pick Up Some Garbage

By Samantha Durbin · March 30, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

A heat wave is upon us — you'll find me in the water. Whether it's my pool, or the Pacific, I'm hot tailing it to surf as soon as possible. Something I've been meaning to do is participate in the Surfrider Foundation's Ocean Beach clean-ups every other Sunday. Knowing I'm helping to keep the ocean plastic free, while basking in post-surf satisfaction, is the best way to spend a Sunday morning. I'm thinking of getting a crew together — who's game? Here's the events calendar for the Sunday beach clean-ups (there's one this Sunday, 4/3) and more water-conscious events hosted by the organization. While you're visiting, sign this Rise Above Plastics petition, and vow to do your part in preventing the Great Pacific Garbage Patch from growing (I'm #19,527!).
