Surfrider Cape Fear Chapter is one of our favorite organizations. They do so much in our community to keep our beaches clean and to protect the environment. So, when we were asked if we would come to their beach sweep, we said, "YES!"
The awesome thing about Surfrider's beach sweeps around here is that they use reusable burlap sacks for the trash. Yep, that means NO plastic bags!!!!
As you can see in the picture below, my burlap sack had lots of cigarette butts. WB is a non-smoking beach, so I'm not sure what is up with that. We need more education about our ordinances so that we can keep the beach clean for everyone.
Thank you Surfrider! We love you!
