Describe your volunteer activities in detail.
I received a plastic bag and gloves to pick up trash on the shore of Huntington Beach. I found plastic material, cigarets, bottles, caps, and many other items of trash. We spent a total of 3 hours cleaning the beach and picking up as much trash as possible.
What were your accomplishments?
I accomplished raising awareness about the issue of polluting our beaches and helped clean up the beach in my community. On an individual level, I helped make a difference by picking up trash that could have killed any number of sea creatures and helped preserve nature.
What did you learn?
I learned that a large number of trash is polluting our oceans and killing marine life. I was appalled when Mr. Pitts told us several statistics regarding ocean pollution and death of ocean life. I can only hope that this issue will gain more awareness through similar activities. I also learned that I can reduce my impact on the ocean by reducing the amount of plastics I use. From now on, I will no longer use straws or lids when eating out.
