Clean up tips-
- Use an app such as the 'Marine Debris Tracker' or 'Clean Swell' to report information on what types of trash you clean up and where
- Take a bucket or other reusable container to put trash in instead of using plastic garbage bags
- Check the tides beforehand and plan to go during a low or outgoing tide
- Don't forget your mask and gloves! Stay safe!
