International Coastal Clean-up
Reaction Paper

Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup is the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean’s health. Each year, thousands of volunteers from around the globe participate, clearing tons of trash from coastlines, rivers and lakes and recording every piece of trash collected. On a beautiful, hot, sunny and a little bit rainy Saturday, we participated in the Annual International Coastal Cleanup at Freedom Island near the Manila-Cavite Expressway. It started at 8:00 am and was well organised. We brought our own bags, gloves and even sticks to grab the rubbish with. We patrolled the beach looking for litter and found mainly small pieces like bottle tops, cigarette butts, shoes, slippers, plastics and foams. It was saddening to see how much plastic you actually find on a relatively “clean” beach.

I cannot think of a better place to be than on the beach and took the liberty of taking dips in the sea to cool off every now and then so it hardly felt like work at all and most of all, it felt good to be helping out. We cleaned for a good two hours and at noon, we were offered drinks and participated in a group photo for remembrance and documentation purposes. We are all connected to the ocean. And we’re all responsible for the trash we leave behind, whether we mean to or not. We joined this global movement that is giving back to the ocean, spent just one day of removing trash from our beaches and waterways.
