What did you perceive and notice while volunteering?
We found during our walk overall was quite clean, however, as we walked picking up bits and bits the piles of trash we collected was a lot. Not only that however I also noticed that there was a lot of styrofoam bits lying around, that were difficult to collect, some even impossible to collect all. Another thing that I found a lot of was plastic bottles and containers.
How do you feel about having been involved in this work?
It was a nice experience, working in a team in order to reach maximum productivity. The task had really impacted my view on volunteering and making a change, such a simple action like picking up trash has an impact on reducing waste in our natural environment.
What do you think and feel about the activity itself?
The activity was enjoyable and easy-going, we walked along the beach in the morning picking up all the trash we could. This being a productive way to start the day.
This activity, I had also played a supporting role, being one of the leaders of the group, and producing signs for our beach clean up group.
What did doing this activity mean to you?
This activity made me more aware of the amount of plastic I use when taking away food, or buying plastic drinking bottles.
What value did this activity have?
The activity demonstrated that it's not hard to try and make change. It also showed the value of trying to live more sustainably. To protect the naturally beautiful landscapes from pollution.
What did you learn from this activity, and how might you use this to apply any lesson to your life more generally?
I learnt to try and live more sustainably, reduce the amount of waste I use, by bringing my own containers etc.
