The Trubeach crew volunteered with Surfrider Pacific Rim (www.pacificrim.surfrider.org) on a beach clean up of Florencia Bay, Tofino area this past month.
“The beach clean up was a success we collected mostly small pieces of plastic, bottles and rope but when looking deeper we found mamy small styrofoam beads at the high water line. Working together with a great group of young volunteers from Surfrider was a pleasure. Seeing young people volunteering their time to make a difference is very inspiring – Nigel Bennett Founder Trubeach”
TruBeach can be used as a tool by groups such as Surfrider and others to report what they see and do during beach clean ups. Sharing information on a community platform is very powerful, the more we report and share the quicker we can educate the population to be aware when they throw something away. The question is where is away. The answer is much of the time away ends up in our oceans.
By supporting groups like Surfrider and using Trubeach (www.trubeach.co) as a tool to report the “Tru” condition of our beaches and oceans, collectively we can change the tide of pollution in our oceans.
Thanks again to the support from Surfrider Pacific Rim and all the volunteers for making this day a success.
