Why Texas Beach Clean-up Is So Important
Just as the sometimes overwhelming abundance of seaweed on the beaches mystifies many people, the overwhelming abundance of trash at other times gives rise to a great deal of consternation, bewilderment, and, regrettably, anger.
Most visitors to the Texas seashore visit to experience the beautiful sun-drenched beaches and leave with pleasant memories of a wonderful vacation.
Unfortunately, some are not so lucky and find at times the beach is covered with a seemingly endless river of trash leaving them wondering "Where does all this trash come from and why is no one doing anything about it?"
Now is your chance to volunteer to do something about that trash and help show your love for the Texas coast.
