Join us for our first ever digital clean up of our beaches! There is no specific date, time or location. Sometime this month, go out to your favorite stretch of beach and conduct your own personal clean up. Then, take the plastic pieces and create a square foot of art (you can use the downloadable templates here) and email the photo to vicechair@volusia.surfrider.org or upload it to our Facebook page. Let us know where the trash was collected and any interesting finds you made. You can also submit your photo to OneFoot@surfrider.org to be entered to win a pair of Teva shoes or a Firewire surfboard!
