These past few years we have heard some efforts made by local authorities, corporations, as well as NGOs to keep the beach cleaner and safer. One of the efforts made are beach cleanups where volunteers gather and together they collect the debris along the shores, under the waters and sorted them out for recycling. This effort however does not promise a long-term solution. It is more important that we change our littering habits. When you go to the beach, you can do whatever you want – play, rest, run, jump – but the one thing you should not do is litter!
