Green Surfing: Go Clean Up
Tip #3: Join a local beach clean-up crew.
Buying an eco-friendly board is a great first step, but to help keep even more plastic out of the ocean, join your local Sierra Club or Surfrider chapter on one of their regularly scheduled beach clean-up trips. (Also check out the Surfrider website for a slew of celebratory, environmentally friendly events for the June 20th holiday!)
Or, on flat days, organize your own clean-up crew with your friends or put together your own Meet-Up group.
