Goals for BEACH: The main goal of beach is stopping the build up of trash on local beaches and save marine life from exposure to pollution. BEACH strives for this goal by educating elementary and high school students and the general public about pollution and the environment. BEACH informs people of the damage that inadequately disposed trash has on the beach and most importantly, what people can do to change bad habits and make a difference. BEACH also attempts to improve the aesthetic and ecological value of local beaches by organizing members of the community to pick up trash already present on the beach. Lastly, BEACH asks that people sign its pledge, saying that when they go to the beach, that they will clean after themselves, leaving no trace of their presence.
