I joined a coastal clean-up

I live in a coastal area and "coastal clean-up drives" are among the usual environmental activities that almost happens every month. I just don't feel good when people just threw their trash in beaches. We would get plastic bottles, cans, bottles and other non-biodegradable materials which is very dangerous to the environment. When I was in high school, I did a case study on a beverage plant's water-treatment facility. I took some pictures and found out through water-testing that their facility has been lacking some standards. I forwarded the results of my elementary effort and I am glad that they responded positively. Do you have any industrial plants and other factories in your area? What have been the situation on there and its ill-effects to the environment?

I work with people living in coastal community, it has been my advocacy that the coasts be cleaned for nature will take its course on us, if we do not do something about us today, not only we do clean the coastal areas but we also plant trees inorder to prevent silt or soil erosions that would eventually kill the marine habitat in the coastal area. Once in a month I urge the residents for a coastal clean up for the community. I was glad that they too are now environment concious and I am glad I was part of that cause. May you continue as well what you have done and be an influence also to your peers, neighbors, family and the like. Cheers !

Yes because our city mayor is an environmentalists. The local government is setting examples so we are also motivated.
