Sometimes when you show up to a clean beach, all you have to do is look a little closer​ and you’ll find plastic pollution. Microplastics are tiny plastic particles less than 5mm long—that’s smaller than the average grain of rice! They’re often overlooked at beach cleanups because they are so small. But if you take a closer look and bring a sifter, you’ll be surprised just how much microplastic you can find. #4ocean

Check out what our Caribbean Cleanup Crew pulled from the ocean and coastline recently. Tires are great for getting you where you need to go, but they aren’t great for marine life. The good news is that tires can be recycled or repurposed. How would you reuse old tires? #4ocean

Did you know manta rays can measure up to 23-feet long, have a 29-foot wingspan, and weigh over 5,000 pounds? Manta rays are gentle giants that prefer plankton over fish. We’re working with the @oceanicpreservationsociety to protect and preserve manta ray populations for generations to come. Visit the link in our bio to learn how you can help. #4ocean #4MantaRays

Manta rays are filter feeders. They swim with their mouths wide open to pull water over their gills. Special structures inside their gills siphon plankton and krill into their bellies and expel water. This style of feeding has worked for millions of years when almost everything in the water was edible. If a manta ray opened its mouth, it was getting food—until about 50 years ago when plastic started entering the ocean. Now, up to half of what manta rays consume can be plastic. #4ocean #4MantaRays 📸: @shawnheinrichs

Once our South Florida Cleanup Crew finishes up each day, they bring all the items collected back to our shop to be sorted and weighed. We don’t just collect recyclables though. We collect everything that has no business being in the ocean—like this grill found by Captain Denise and the rest of the Unit 8 Boat Crew in Fort Lauderdale, FL. #4ocean #WeAre4ocean

Our Caribbean Cleanup Crew is hard at work sifting through piles of PET bottles and other marine debris. According to Ocean Conservancy, plastic bottles are number 3 on the list of top items collected during coastline cleanups. In 2019 alone, our Caribbean Cleanup Crew has collected over 32,169 pounds of PET plastic. #4ocean #WeAre4ocean
