We started "Save Our Beach" because we live along the ocean (it's literally our backyard) and we take long walks and pick up trash along the way. We were asked many times if we had any extra bags as people would see us pick up trash and they thought they'd like to help, so we started carrying extra trash bags on our walks. Then we started carrying a box of trash bags with us and setting it on the sand and people would pick up a trash bag and help out. And then we decided if there is that much interest in people that want to help, we'll just make it easier for them by conducting a beach cleanup on a monthly basis. Then we added California Coastal Day, where we have 3 locations AND we also added a monthly Riverbed/Wetlands Cleanup.
