Review for Ocean Blue Project, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ocean blue project came to my town, Long Beach, California, and I participated in their beach cleanup. We weren’t just picking up garbage on the beach. I also got an education and micro plastics. I had no idea that these things were even in the sand. It was only after this cleanup that I realized these little tiny plastic pieces are throughout the sand. It really motivated me to educate others and to regularly do my part in cleaning up litter and helping keep the waterways clean.

Review for Ocean Blue Project, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ocean Blue Project came down to Southern California, where I participated in a beach clean-up. I came down to volunteer, expecting I'd just be walking and picking up garbage off the beach. Working with this group was so wonderful. I actually didn't have to walk at all. We were picking up micro plastics -- tiny pieces of plastic that I could just sit in one spot and sift from the sand. I got such an education from this experience. Though I've been a beach-goer my whole life, I'd never seen the tiny "nurdles" (micro plastic balls) in the sand. I saw the macro garbage, which I'd been picking up, but working with this organization made me aware of how much more we need to do in education and stewardship! The organizers were friendly and kind, and it was a family affair with kids in tow.
