Soon, we will be on vacation and although I know that we will create some additional waste on the trip, I still want to make sure to continue on my green quest. This week’s green challenge is to find some green tasks to do while we are on vacation. I think I know at least one thing we will while we are in San Diego… pick up garbage off of the beach.
We have been going to San Diego for several years to visit my parents and go on at least one walk a day. I figured that we could take a bag on a few of our walks and pick up garbage to either put in the proper receptacle or recycle. Although the Mission Beach area is a nice beach, I am sure there will be plenty of garbage to pick up.
Garbage on the beach might end up in the ocean or vice versa. There is even a large area of garbage in the ocean that is called the great garbage patch. This pile of garbage is the size of Texas. Well, Ashley and I may not be able to clean up the entire ocean, but possibly we can take one small step to try and be part of the solution.
I am really looking forward to this trip and I hope that we can do a little to help with the environment also. If you have any green activities you could suggest or interesting things in the San Diego area, please let me know in the comments area below.
