Just in today: The lawsuit that was brought on ChicoBag by plastic bag giants has been settled!! WOOT! Such great news! Plastic bags blow!! We picked up 2 plastic bags on the beach on Sunday evening AND Sunday morning my husband picked up several plastic bags in the water as he was SUPing two of our kids around Wrightsville Beach. Every time I'm able to snap a photo of a plastic bag in the environment, I add it to Surfrider Foundation Cape Fear Chapter's photos on Facebook, if you catch a plastic bag in "action" snap a photo, grab it... then post your photo!
Saturday, September 24th is NC BIG SWEEP!! Volunteers are needed, so come on out and help clean up our beaches and waterways!
"Big Sweep will begin at 9:00 am in Wrightsville Beach at the Gazebo at Johnnie Mercer’s Pier, Carolina Beach at the Boardwalk Gazebo, Kure Beach at the Pier, and Greenfield Lake at the Boathouse.
Please come prepared to be outdoors: wear sunscreen, sturdy closed toe shoes and clothes that can get dirty. Help us reduce the amount of waste at the event by bringing your own reusable water bottle and gloves if you have them."
