For more than 16 years, Girl Scouts have been helping with International Coastal Cleanup Day, the world's largest day of volunteerism focused on the oceans.
The girls said they felt good about helping the earth.Quinn Moore, 12, a Cadet Girl Scout from Raymond said she is never surprised that there is trash on the beach.
Neil Savage, a longtime volunteer with the Girl Scouts, and a longtime organizer of the Coastal Rompers program said more than 100 countries participate in the international cleanup day each year during the third weekend in September. The international event is organized by the Ocean Conservancy. The Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation coordinates the New Hampshire event.
"The idea is to have almost like a snapshot of the ocean refuse all around the world, so we want to count at the same time," Savage said.
