Cleaning up San Diego

Welcome from San Diego! We are writing a post about the San Diego beaches and how dirty they can get. Pollution, including trash, is killing or hurting animals in the ocean. That’s why we need to help to clean it up!

Guess how much trash we find on the beach each year? Fifteen thousand pounds worth of trash! If people keep trashing our beaches, it will harm the environment and animals. The most common trash we find are cigarette buds. Can you believe that!  We don’t want trash to get into the ocean and hurt animals. We want our ocean and beaches clean. Don’t you agree?
We have lots of organizations that organize beach clean ups in San Diego. They organize these clean ups to make our beaches cleaner and safer. I Love a Clean San Diego is an organization that, “Provides environmental educational events and programs for local residents.” They are hosting the Creek to Bay Cleanup  Saturday, April 27th. Volunteers will remove trash from San Diego’s beaches, waterways, canyons, and parks. Here’s a video another event called Coastal Clean Up. So, what are you waiting for? Go and help the beach! It does not matter how old or how young you are. We do this for the people and animals at the beach. Kids have fun cleaning the beach. So come and help!!!

  1. Thank you Mackenzie.
    You communicated your enthusiasm for cleaning up San Diego beaches.
    We live near the beach here in Greystones, Co. Wicklow in Ireland and we understand the importance of keeping the area clean for ourselves and tourists and wildlife.
    We have an active ‘Green’ school committee in our school and we work to keep our area green and clean.
    With every good wish
