I've been trying to get this goal completed all summer! Lucky for me, Sept 25th was National Coastal Clean-up Day! With over 800 sites doing beach clean ups last Saturday, I decided to head down to my much loved San Clemente.
My Aunt Laura and I participated in the event together, scowering the coast down by Califia State Beach for any speck of trash. I have to say I was impressed! I feel like I normally see much more trash down by the beach, but it was honestly hard to find any significant pieces of trash- but you betcha I picked up every tiny speck of foam, cigarette buds, and wrappers I saw. The most popular piece of trash I picked up you ask? Well besides cigarette buds (which I pretty sure its illegal to smoke on the beach), was the straw wrappers from children's juice boxes! So- with that discovery I have decided that my children will never have juice boxes down by the beach (sounds harsh but by the time I have kids I'm sure something better will have come out for kiddies to sip their drinks out of).
