World Oceans Day @ your favorite beach on June 8

ADVERTISEMENT

Hundreds of communities around the globe will celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8 to learn about the world ocean, our connection to it and to raise awareness about the role of the ocean in our lives and the ways people can protect it.

One way to pay tribute to the ocean is to pay some attention to a beach near you. Just pick up any trash or cigarette butts you come across.

The non-profit organization Keepers of the Coast is looking for those dedicated beachcombers to post the trash or treasure find so they can discover just how far it has traveled.
