Finally got out of self isolation during the Coronavirus lockdown for a quick beach cleanup on Oahu's most remote coastline. Felt so good to get some sun, some exercise, and to do a good deed while abiding by the necessary mandates. We stayed on the move and saw virtually no one the whole day.
As a bonus, I was able to rig up a good system by cutting up some ghost net lines to tie off and haul out some serios poundage over 2 miles back to the parking lot.
If trying to get some exercise by walking the beach you might as well take a bucket or bag with you and do a cleanup along the way.
Hope everyone is staying safe and making good decisions!
With one day left til shelter-in-place takes effect, we got out to do a small group beach cleanup.
We know this was 'pushing it' but these are dear friends we are already in close contact with and just had to get some Vitamin D and do some good along the way! Hope everyone is staying safe and staying positive.
Malama aina and Aloha.
Incredible beach cleanup today with a world class crew!!!
Cleaned three different beaches on Windward Oahu and enjoyed a truly beautiful and inspiring esprit de corps the whole day!
Easily over a thousand pounds of plastic and ghost nets removed from the beaches. Great work gang!!!
Amazing morning spent with students from BOTH Koko Head Elementary and University of Hawaii's Business Society cleaning the beach in Waimanalo!
The kids had such great questions and showed a real passion to learn, volunteer, amd make a difference.
Mahalo for all the hard work and special thanks to Eric Bartley and Kalei Ehlers from Hawaii Ocean Ambassadors for the help in leading and organizing!
