The beach clean up was lots of fun. It helped lots of animals as the litter on the beach would have otherwise gone into the ocean and killed many animals. It was cool making a plant pot and watering can by using the plastic bottles we collected from the beach.

Great Event to Raise Awareness

We thoroughly enjoyed t4p’s beach clean up-cycling event. As parents we talk to our children about plastic pollution and the effect it’s having on our oceans-it was nice to put our words into action with a beach clean up. It was sad to see how much waste there was on the beach and at the end of the session you could clearly see the satisfaction on the children’s faces when they saw how many baskets full of waste was collected by themselves. This was a great initiative to get the children to not only think about ways to protect the environment they live in but to act upon it to.
