In the bigger picture, marine debris is a real issue, and we learned that it’s way bigger than most of us thought. Marine debris doesn’t just end up on our beaches … it’s all over the world … it’s on EVERY beach. And we’re going to do something about that!

We can keep working together, and having fun together, as we figure out the marine debris issue … and make our ocean and beaches clean again.
