How to Protect Your Beach

Things you can do to help protect your beach:

  • Dispose of trash properly - use trash cans at the beach or take your trash home with you
  • Reduce, reuse and recycle as many as possible of the things you use -- anywhere, anytime
  • Cut the rings off plastic six-pack holders so that animals (like fish, turtles or seals) can't get tangled in them — leave no solid plastic loops
  • Join local beach, river or stream clean-ups
  • Teach others how to practice good beach safety
