Green Bag Lady is teaming up with Sara from The Daily Ocean and Danielle from It Starts With Me. Both of these fabulous women do almost daily clean ups of the beaches near their homes. To make things easier, I made them special beach bags. You can see Sara's here and Danielle's here. I adore that these ladies are making our beaches and oceans cleaner places. I wish more people would pitch in on this effort.
For this freebie we have 12 beach themed bags. The first three are mesh bottom bags similar to those that Sara and Danielle use. The sand shakes right out of the bottom while all the trash remains. We would love to get these into the hands of others willing to follow Sara and Danielle's example by cleaning up a beach near you!
I love this quote by Beverly Goodman (from a National Geographic interview):"The ocean, to me, is everything. The surface of our planet is dominated by water. In fact it should be called planet Water instead of planet Earth! The importance of the ocean in the entire Earth’s system of our climate, atmosphere, and daily life is endless. It is taken for granted by many, but every drop of water we drink, every raindrop that falls, has traveled a great distance and is connected to all the oceans of the world. The air we breathe is in part courtesy of the ocean’s photosynthetic properties. The great expanses of the oceans and seas are home to a diversity and range of wildlife and creatures with unique characteristics and ways of living that could be key to our own survival."
