Shine Beach Clean Up!

Pin It!

The Shine Project

Saturday was The Shine Beach Clean Up in San Diego. A group of about 70 bloggers met up at Mission Beach to help clean up trash. The amazing Ashley from The Shine Project organized everything and I could not wait to meet her! I've been a reader of her blog for awhile now and she has one of the biggest hearts. If only there were more people in the world who took such an active role in helping others. 
Kelly eager to clean, and sweet sweet Tammy!
We split up in smaller groups and took off in different directions. Me, Meg, Kandi, Kelly, Stesha and Reannah enjoyed the beautiful views and slightly overcast skies while we scoured the beach for cigarette butts, socks, plastic bottles, you name it! Surprisingly the beaches were pretty clean and we weren't able to get as much as I was envisioning. 
Afterwards, when we saw all of the bags the groups had collected, our impact seemed greater.

I stole these next few pictures from Stesha's blog:

After the clean-up, Kandi, Kelly and I went to the Ale House which is a rooftop restaurant with beautiful views of the ocean.

 It was a wonderful day spent with a group of passionate girls I'm so happy to have met!
Check out Ashley's blog to see if she's hosting any events in your city!

Is it bad that I want to drink that Blue Moon right now? At nine in the AM. At least I think it's a Blue Moon. Looks delicious. And good on you (and the others) for being good beach cleaner uppers.
