Trash is polluting our ocean
Here in California, way too much of our trash ends up in the ocean. When it rains, litter and trash from the areas outside our homes and in our neighborhood gets picked up by the rain flowing down the driveways and gutters and into the storm drains. This runoff then flows into nearby creeks taking the trash with it and ultimately makes its way to the Pacific Ocean. This neighborhood trash that ends up in the ocean can include items like food wrappers, plastic grocery bags, straws and just about anything that is littered.
