Not only Jean Michel Cousteau, but everyone needs to make an effort to keep our ocean and waterways clean. On my last trip to the Colorado River I was paddling by the reeds and was shocked by how much trash there was. My dad and I collected a lot of it on our stand up paddle boards. It is super sad to see how much trash we collected on less than 1/2 mile paddle. The main point is that if everyone picks up a little trash while doing the activities they love, it creates a cleaner and healthier environment.

We need to Keep our Ocean and Waterways clean. Please help Body Glove and Jean Michel Cousteau by visiting the Ocean Futures Society and find out about ways that you can help.
