Why is Coastal Cleanup Day important?
- Trash in the ocean compromises human and wildlife health, which affects the livelihoods of millions all over the planet. We all need clean water.
- Every little piece of paper, cigarette butt or bottle cap that makes its way to street sewers ends up in streams or rivers and eventually down to the ocean.
- Oceans are the largest part of our water cycle, generating oxygen and rain necessary to sustain life on Earth.
