Thank you to everyone who joined us for our family beach cleanup in São Lourenço yesterday!
We had 20 volunteers and spent two hours clearing microplastics from the beach just north of the pool. The images in this post feature a fraction of what we were able to clear from the beach. The team did a great job!
We made new friends, and afterwards enjoyed some waves and the pool. Our volunteers even surprised us with homemade cookies and vegan brownies!
We will be sorting the plastics this week to separate out nurdles to join others from around the world for artivism project @check.mate.project in Belgium to raise international awareness to micro plastic pollution issue in our oceans.
The rest of the plastics, will be sent to the recycling center.
