“The biggest oil spill on our planet is the one in the form of plastic pollution, spread throughout every ocean basin and washing up on virtually every single beach.” – Wallace J. Nichols, PhD, SOS Board Member
This year Save Our Shores will generate less waste during the cleanup by encouraging volunteers to BYO – every glove, bucket, or reused trash collection bag you bring will reduce the number of new plastic bags and gloves used. Take it a step further and avoid bringing single-use plastic bottles or coffee cups – BYO means less waste that can end up in our ocean!
