The exercise aims to promote the #WorldOceanDay2022 theme, “Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean” by picking up single-use plastic along the shore while educating people on the damaging impacts of coastal pollution on marine animals. Over the past few years, we have woken up to horrifying headlines about sea life that has unfortunately died due to consuming or being trapped by the waste we dump in the oceans. Picking up trash that has washed up on the beach allows us to remove it before the tide washes it back out. Ensuring marine wildlife does not come into contact with it and becomes endangered in some way.
