What is your wish for this project?
Our main goal for Teens vs. Trash is to educate people on how negative garbage is to our oceans and what we can do to change that.

How did it go?
Our project was a success! We actually started Teens vs. Trash a while ago, but now we have incorporated even more into the project! We organized a few very successful beach cleanups over the past couple years and our new station (Litter Pickers) is also a success! We have a few teen volunteers almost every weekend who help clean up LOTS of trash. We collect huge bags of trash every time!
