"This Valentine's Day, give your heart to the ocean" graphic.

Valentine’s Day is almost here and what better way to celebrate than by showing our ocean some love? This year, give your heart to the ocean by thinking about how you can help protect it from marine debris. Consider the impacts of your actions and what changes you can make to help—make sure you’re following the three R’s whenever possible (reduce, reuse, recycle!). If you’d like to make a bigger gesture, consider getting involved in a shoreline cleanup near you. Sign up for our monthly e-newsletter to get updates on cleanup events happening throughout the country.
