Beach Clean Up Day

My view as I walked to the beach

My company participated in an annual beach clean up day, so I volunteered to join them.  I think there were about 10 or 12 companies participating.  There were individuals and families with children cleaning up the parking area and the beach.  

There were a few fisherman who didn't seem to be distracted by all of us.

With so many people the clean up only lasted around an hour.  We were all given some special cold green tea afterward.  

It was a fun morning and I was happy to do something with my company for my community.


  1. You live in a beautiful area, and keeping the environment and community clean is a good thing. Thank you for your hard work. Otsukarasamadeshita!

  2. hi Pamela ,well done everyone many hands make less work xx

  3. Volunteers do that along our river too. They even go out to clean the RIVER. You'd be surprised to see what they find in THERE! In your group pic you are standing behind a corporate banner. Just wondering if you work for Johnson Controls. They have a plant in Elkhart Indiana too. Boy, my daughter would love that tea bottle. She collects all things Japanese!

  4. Well done Pamela it is wonderful to see people out caring for the environment. You have some beautiful views of Mount Fuji there.

  5. That's a great thing to do. Every year in spring they do it here as well in every village and small town. And It's always volunteers who do it, like members of sport or music clubs, teachers with their students and whoever feels like doing something for the environment.

  6. I love that you have days like these organized, but then, the beach looks much cleaner in the beginning than it would look like after cleaning up in many other countries!
