It’s almost April and not only is April Earth Month, but it’s also a wonderful time to get going on some spring cleaning! This is a great time of year to clean your closet, your house, and your local shore.
Nothing says spring cleaning like getting involved in a good old-fashioned cleanup. Organizations around the country are holding coastal cleanups this month, so volunteer and get involved! Subscribe to our e-newsletter to get monthly updates on cleanups across the nation. Don’t see a cleanup near you? Start your own (just remember, safety always comes first)!
Don’t have the time to devote to a cleanup? There are many other ways you can help clean your area. To start, don’t forget that following the three R’s always helps, so make sure to reduce, reuse, and recycle whenever possible! If you want to help stop marine debris and love spring gardening, then consider planting a rain garden. With the spring rains coming through, debris can easily wash into your local waterways. Plant a rain garden to help stop the flow and make your yard look beautiful in the meantime!
How will you help out our ocean and Great Lakes this spring break?
