We hit the beach a few weeks ago. Not for a kite session, surfing or a siesta on the sand, but to join a beach and mangroves clean up day that was taking place at the lagoon of Grand-Cul-de-Sac in St-Barth . It often happens to us to walk around to collect a trash here and there on our days at the beach, but this time it was with a little more people around, a working force I would call. Young people got involved, working hard out, walking tight inside the mangroves to grab the garbage stuck in there and carrying all of it in their little plastic truck toward the big truck. Some older ones were taking care of the beach side.
It was amazing to see the amounts of plastics, bottles, fishing lines and cans. Being part of the beach clean-up with only a couple dozen people was a reminder that it really doesn’t take an army to make a big difference — an individual can have a large impact.
A small community at work, the power force united, good vibes…and a cleaner beach on this planet.
By the way, if you ever see that we are heading on your way and that there is a beach clean up day coming, please let us know ! We’ll be in and isn’t it a great way to meet awesome people?
