You might not think of a beach cleanup as an outing. However, it is a great way to go out into the community, make a difference, and enjoy the outdoors along the way.
This is my first time participating in a beach cleanup. People always forget to bring their trash back. It leads to ocean creatures face the ocean crisis! Joyce told me a lot of knowledge about the beach clean and recycling. Reduce your plastic consumption by using your own thermos for water and coffee. Stop your use of single-use utensils like soup spoons and chopsticks by bringing your own. Joyce told me not only in Taiwan but also in greater Asia, have a huge problem with single-use plastics at restaurants. You can greatly reduce your impact by bringing the above items with you. Taiwan right now has a lot of beach clean NGOs, such as the society of wilderness, Green peace Taiwan, Taiwan Ocean Cleanup Alliance(T.O.C.A) and so on. Thanks to Joyce, who is a homeroom teacher in fourth grade, taking me to participate in this wonderful activity. When I go back to Dubai, I want to do the beach cleanup with my classmates.
After we had a great time at the beach, we decided to pick up trash on the seashore. We were glad we did that. After we clean up the seashore, I felt so proud of myself. Then we went home to have strawberry and bubble milk tea as my dessert. What a great day!
