Bohol Beach Clean Up Success

On November 19, 2016 we partnered with @plasticfree_bohol to organize a Bohol beach clean up in Panglao Beach, Philippines. We’re happy to report that it was a great success!

With just over 20 volunteers there were a total of 22 sacks collected that weighed in around 50 kilos! It’s amazing what an impact you can make for your local community beaches when you work together. During the clean up, we noted what kind of trash was found…

Most common trash:

  1. – Styrofoam
  2. – Plastic bottles
  3. – Plastic bottle caps
  4. – Plastic bags
  5. – Plastic food/junk food wrappers

Other trash:

  • – Plastic eating utensils
  • – Plastic straws
  • – Ghost nets
  • – Paint cans
  • – Paint rollers
  • – Diapers
  • – Napkins and panty liners
  • – Shoes and flip flops
  • – Underwear
  • – Jeans and shirts
  • – Tin cans
  • – Urine bag (most interesting trash)
  • – Syringe needle
  • – Medicine bottles
  • – Lollipop sticks
  • – Cotton swab sticks
  • – Alcohol bottles

Every city in the world is different, but the trash we find on the beaches around the globe is the same and is polluting this earth, affecting the animals that live in it.

Please always throw away trash and if possible remember to use reusable products instead of plastics.

Now that we’ve seen the Bohol beach clean up success, we’d love to find more volunteers to host a beach clean up in your local city. It can be anywhere around the world, all you need to do is show up to gather the volunteers and we’ll help you organize the rest! Email lou@kapuluancoconut.com if you’re interested.

YOU can truly make a difference!

Thank you to all of our volunteers in the Philippines!
