A fun DIY project for urban beachcombers...who want to "use" all their finds. :) The materials provide an interesting snapshot of a single downtown beach: "porcelain" or "brick" pieces, pop can tabs, bottlecaps, buttons, green and brown beach glass, plastic/iron "sticks"...pebbles. While it is a bit sad to see so many unnatural things, I much enjoyed the process of finding the objects, and giving them a "third life." As always, they have a strange and sweet beauty to them. 😌 #beachbricks #allianceforthegreatlakes

A snapshot that recalls the #BigLakeBash, thrown by the #allianceforthegreatlakes nine years ago at Camp Blodgett. The sunset drenched my camera's lens with gold. #10-07-2010, #LodgeItAtCampBlodgett

Here are some pics from our September Beach Cleanup. At first glance, you’d think it was a fairly clean beach, yet everyone worked hard and we managed to amass quite a pile of trash that will no longer have a chance at wreaking havoc on the environment. And yes, that’s the basket of a shopping cart. 😯 ~ Thanks to everyone who came out today and spent a few hours cleaning Headlands Beach State Park as part of International Coastal Cleanup Day with @alliance4greatlakes, and to @meijerstores for joining us as well. We have the best volunteers! 💚🌎🌊🏴‍☠️ . . . . #defendconserveprotect #seashepherdcleveland #ssc #onshorevolunteers #osvs #seashepherdcle #sscs #protectourgreatlake #mentorheadlands #headlandsbeach #allianceforthegreatlakes #afgl #fortheoceans #lovelakeerie #plasticpollution #internationalcoastalcleanup

706 pounds of trash was collected on Walnut Beach, in Ashtabula, Ohio on International Coastal Cleanup Day! Remember, you can cleanup your beach, park or neighborhood any day and promote using reusable products and not littering! #kidsforpositivechange #allianceforthegreatlakes #internationalcoastalckesnupday2019 #oceanconservancy

today we spent the morning cleaning up the beach! you may not realize how polluted our Great Lakes are but each year there are 22 MILLION POUNDS of plastic dumped into the Great Lakes. These tiny microplastics are hard to see but are a huge contributor to this issue. ••• today we picked up 59 lbs of trash from the Grand Haven beach!!! every little thing helps, I encourage everyone to go spend a little time at the beach & clean! ••• Please share & spread the word, let’s save our Great Lakes!! #makingwaves #allianceforthegreatlakes #adoptabeach #adoptabeachday

It’ll take a while for me to truly appreciate what we as a team accomplished. So instead of trying, check out @adamalexanderphoto’s badass photography and some quick stats from our journey 🤙 Thanks to our crew, and to everyone that supported and followed us along the way!

On 9/20 and beyond, let’s call for investigation into where the trash in Lake Michigan is coming from? This is household trash south of Oval Beach (Saugatuck). This and thousands of pieces of plastic refuse are covering our beaches up and down the coast- who’s dumping “recycling” in our Lake? In Grand Haven this summer, after a storm, I couldn’t sit on my towel and chill, I walked up and down picking plastic out of the sand...heartfelt thanks to the family vacationing on the beach who saw what I was doing and showed me a pile of plastic THEY had gathered and we dumped it in my little grocery bag. Call for clean up but where’s the perp!? In Pickerel, aside from@the usual post 4th fireworks trash, little bits of pladtic washing up every day...where’s the rest of it coming from? #bridgemagazine, #michiganradio, #allianceforthegreatlakes, #tipofthemittwatershed, anybody else??

This is the endangered Mitchell’s Satyr butterfly. Michigan is one of the only places in the world that you can still find it. The Mitchell's Satyr is restricted to rare wetlands called fens which are low nutrient systems that receive carbonate-rich ground water from seeps and springs. The delicate balance of life in these ecosystems is under threat by agricultural development, pollutants, and invasive species. Keeping our wetlands healthy is crucial to ensuring proper biodiversity and also ensuring that we get to admire these awesome little dudes for generations to come. #michigan #art #wildlife #conservation #endangeredspecies #digitalart #illustration #allianceforthegreatlakes

When our customers opt of a shopping bag, we donate the cost of that bag to an environmental charity of their choice. Between July 1st and today, over 640 people chose to donate instead of taking a bag! #weloveplanetearth #goinggreen #ourcustomersrock #nationalparksconservationassociation #allianceforthegreatlakes #earthshareillinois #shoplocal #completebirkenstock

We had another successful beach cleanup yesterday. Forty volunteers joined @seashepherdcle and worked for three hours cleaning Wendy Park Beach. While we removed only 62 pounds of garbage from Wendy Park Beach, it consisted of some of the worst culprits. As you can see, our volunteers collected thousands of pieces of styrofoam and single-use plastics like straws, bottles, and plastic bags. Wendy Park seems to be one of the most neglected beaches in the Cleveland Metroparks, and is always overrun with thousands and thousands of smaller particles. In April, we gathered around 400 pounds from this beach. A huge “thank you” to each and every one of our awesome volunteers! Your efforts help make a difference for both our Great Lake and the oceans beyond our shores. We love our volunteers! . . . . . #seashepherdcleveland #ssc #onshorevolunteers #osvs #seashepherdcle #sscs #protectourgreatlake #thisiscle #allianceforthegreatlakes #fortheoceans #lovelakeerie #plasticpollution #bansingleuseplastic
