The LoGioco family decided enough was enough. We were sick and tired of looking at trash littering the beach and rocks on one of our favorite pathways that meanders along the water on the Sandy Hook Bay in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. I also fish here in the Spring and Summer and actually recognized individual pieces of garbage lodged in the rocks from last season. When you recognize individual pieces of garbage, it's time for a CLEAN UP! That's just what we did! So here's a short 3 minute video on our mission.
1.) "Are you still able to get $.05 a can for those?" - this joker thought we were scavenging.
2.) "Thanks for the help" - this lady actually got what we were doing.
3.) "Makes me think that most of us don't know what to do with this stuff" - this guy actually picked up a big piece and carried in half way out then dropped it.
All the others didn't say a word to us. They either looked away or ran/walked faster as they passed us, even when our hands were over full either with garbage or full bags.
So a huge nod to my two boys and wife for coming along with me on this mission and nailing it. And in the rain no less. As numerous joggers in their black spandex pants ran past my family, with their heads down, my team had their hands dirty picking mostly plastic water bottles out of the rocks. You rock! We'll be back and next time with more people, more garbage bags and the same energy to simply clean it up!
