  3. Coastal Cleanup is a nationwide activity for picking up trash.
  4. If you think about it you probably would not want to get up at 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning and pick up trash.
    You would probably want to sleep in or watch cartoons.
  5. But imagine this, walking through the park with no trash on the ground or enjoying the beach with no cigarettes in the sand.
