This month, I’m sharing two stories about individuals who have taken it upon themselves to clean up beaches.
Story #1: Pat Smith, a 70 year old grandmother nicknamed “Action Nan” has cleaned up 52 beaches in a year. She couldn’t sleep after learning about plastic pollution and decided to do what she could. She’s motivating me to take a reusable bag to the beach with me and pick up trash every time I go. So much trash ends up in waterways. Even if you don’t live near a beach, please consider helping out. Pick up trash and work to reduce or eliminate your use of plastics and Styrofoam.
Story #2: This past spring, college Freshman Joshua Caraway went to a Miami, Florida beach with his friends for spring break. But when he saw all the trash on the beach, he went to work.
“I love animals, I also love the environment,” Caraway told CTVNews.ca. “That’s why I like to help.”
Stop by and see what inspiring stories of light they bring.
