On Sunday March 15th family and friends gathered on Holden Beach to clean up the trash. We were out there for 2 1/2 hours picking up trash.
This is the type of trash we found. We found candy rappers,soda bottles and mainly cigarette butts!!
When we went to pick up trash I was very thankful that most of the trash were in the trash cans! That made me very happy and the only sad part was we did find trash on the beach!!
We started at the Holden Beach Pier!!! I had friends and family friends come to help!! We all split up in to different directions. Half of us when to the right and the others went to left. And we all went back at the pier and we went the opposite direction we went before!!
When we went to throw away our trash it made me so happy that some part of the beach is finally clean!! Every time I found a piece of trash it really hurt me because so many trash was on the beach when so many birds and sea turtles are laying their eggs there! Different types of animals live and rest there everyday!!
BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY I WAS HAPPY THAT THE TRASH WAS IN THE TRASH CANS AND NOT ON THE SAND!!!
Please remember to leave only footprints on the beach, NO TRASH!
