Beach Clean Ups
One fantastic activity very close to Planet Mermaids heart is a beach clean-up! With the summer holidays soon upon us the desire to visit the beach is ever more luring! Why not make a difference and organise a local clean up or even just spend an hour or so during your trip picking up rubbish that has been washed to shore or left by fellow holiday makers. You never know if people see you doing such an amazing thing they may offer to help!
Take lots of photos and share them on social media and use the @plasticfreejuly handle along with @PlanetMermaid to promote your amazing work.
