Cleanup Log 2015

My Ocean Beach cleanup on September 6th, 2015, launched my trash collection activism but it took me until November 21st to start documenting the cleanups on this page. Due to my picture-taking, I was able to piece together most of the days I’ve been “out there” but not always did I bring my cell phone – so not all dates are listed. Still though… I may as well pitch a tent on a beach and live there! 🙂
