September is the time for International Coastal Cleanup Day. Every year this global endeavor brings as many hands as possible together to help battle an immense issue…marine debris. Communities everywhere will come together to help pick up and document the trash that litters their coastal habitats. This problem is one that will only be solved by each of us making small decisions every day to change the way we live and the impact we have on our ocean and our planet.
