Brief reflection
We did a beach cleanup. Throughout the cleanup, I picked up multiple bags that were all brimming to the top with trash, and once we were done, I could tell the difference from before and after. Before, it was filled with trash in spots no one really looked at, but now, those cracks and crevices were all clean. Additionally, I think that people really looked at us and instead of throwing away their trash on the sand like they would normally do, the trash cans were fuller, and additionally, there was less trash on the beach overall. I think that in this sense, we've definitely accomplished letting people know that they shouldn't randomly throw trash, because all it will do is harm the earth. Overall, the experience was a nice one, and we got to help the earth.
