Living in a smaller coastal community like Fulton/Rockport has taught me the importance for each and every one of us are to it's survival and healthy growth. Come join us Saturday in cleaning up our piece of paradise.
My daughter from way early on, has always practiced eco-friendly practices such as doing beach clean-ups, Volunteering at the Aquarium and countless other recycling projects,etc. Mom on the other hand was not as green thinking as she was but she quickly set me straight. She has taught me so much over the years. She pursued her degrees and followed up with career in the earth sciences.
When I came across this picture of the turtle, it reminded me of the day she came in from working at the Aquarium and said " mom if I ever see you purchasing these 6 pack soda holders, I best be seeing you cut them up so that they do hurt the birds/animals. But better yet mom, just don't buy sodas packaged like that". I will always remember that, and that began my journey to be a better steward of Mother earth.
So I encourage all of us to take a few steps in do our part... While there are hundreds of ways to get this accomplished here are a couple of ways. One of the easiest methods is to always keep a trash bag (recycled of course) in your vehicle for when you are visiting the beach, just take two minutes and pick up any trash you find... you will be very surprised, not to mention feeling good about it too. Several times a year when they have local beach clean-ups, go participate.. they make a huge impact on the environment.
