Summer is officially right around the corner and with that comes summer vacation! Take this time to enjoy all that Mother Earth has to offer by getting outside and enjoying the outdoors. This past Saturday was National Get Outdoors Day, but don’t worry if you missed it, you can get outdoors any day! There are so many fun, beautiful, and unique resources that our wonderful planet offers, so let’s make sure we take the time to enjoy them.
Unfortunately, beautiful resources like our ocean and Great Lakes are being threatened by marine debris. BUT we can do something about it! Evaluate how you may be contributing to marine debris in your own life and choose to make small changes that can make a big difference (like reducing, reusing, and recycling!). Join a cleanup that can help to address the marine debris problem and get you outside at the same time! Sign up for our e-newsletter to get monthly updates on cleanups around the country. If we all do our part to fight against threats like marine debris, we can continue to enjoy the beautiful (debris-free) outdoors!
