ThreeMain Cleans Up: Our Carson Beach Project to Remove Plastic Waste

Beach Clean up

Our Carson Beach Cleanup Helped Remove Over 50lbs of Waste!

Wow, what an amazing day we had at our first beach cleanup here in Boston with our nonprofit partner Rozalia Project and over 30 amazing volunteers from Boston!

We spent the last few weeks learning how to organize a beach cleanup, and in less than 30 minutes, we were able to remove over 50 pounds of ocean-bound waste and nearly 2000 items were counted.

Checkout all the data below, and some pictures of our group in action!
