  1. 2,700 volunteers helped clean beaches and many other places, in all 5 municipalities of Baja California.
  2. 7,300 Kilograms of trash were picked up and put into sacs. This means more than 7 tons!

However, this event took place in all countries of the world, and here are the results:

2015 Report

An astounding 560,000 volunteers in 91 countries picked up more than 16 million pounds of trash in our International Coastal Cleanup.

So you see, if people work together great things can be accomplished.

Here is a game that you might enjoy with your classmates or at home with your family. It can only work if all of you play together and organize yourselves, helping each other.

I think it would be fun if you can come up with activities where everyone is your classroom can participate in. You could divide yourselves into  small teams even.

Will you try? And please give me feedback. Tell me what you did and what managed to accomplish.

Don’t forget to post your comments with your full name, so I know who you are!

I love you and will see you soon.

    Hi Miss Lilian, we were very happy to have the opportunity to participate in this event, our children were very sad about all the trash they found, but at the same time they were very happy to help. It was the best activity to practice our value of the month “teamwork”.

    Buen día, mi hija estuvo muy contenta participando en este evento, estaba emocionada de que su equipo recolectara tanta basura, su primo, su papi y yo les agradecemos invitarnos a esta labor. Ella es nueva en la escuela y le fascina; fué la mejor decisión que tomamos al inscribirla en BAI. Es una niña plena, feliz y le encanta todo lo relacionado al Colegio. Cuando le pregunto al recogerla, cómo fue su día, ella dice “Grandioso mami, grandioso”….!!!!!!!!

    Hello Miss Lilian,
    It was a wonderful activity for children to acknowledge how humans affect the environment, but also to appreciate how much we can achieve together. They noticed what a difference two hours of our lives made. We had lots of fun. Some children even felt like they were in a treasure hunt helping! Regards, Miss Alma.

    We are amazed on how those numbers add up. The children that participated are very happy to know that they formed part of such an amazing task.
    Can’t wait to work with the spaghetti and marshmallows, we will take pictures. They are making their own teams and are going to organize themselves.
    See you soon.

    El evento de la Limpieza Costera, fue una experiencia muy agradable para nosotras y nuestras hijas!!! El poder transmitirles la responsabilidad social de cuidar nuestro planeta y contribuir un poco a tener un mundo mejor.
    El trabajo en equipo es una característica en BAI. El video de la pasta y bombones es un claro ejemplo del valor del mes que estamos practicando en el colegio.
    Gracias por compartir estos temas con nosotros!

    British American Institute, siempre en busca de un planeta mejor.
    Esta actividad que se ha promovido en varias ocasiones es muy importante para nuestros alumnos.
    Cambiar la idea de cuidar la playa, pasar de una actividad extraordinaria a una responsabilidad constante, agacharte y recoger tu basura y no esperar el día del evento, eso es lo que queremos lograr. Una cultura de cuidar el lugar que habitas.

    Dear Miss Lilian,

    Thank you very much for the blog post. Unfortunately, none of 6B know how much rubbish they collected on the beach. I (with Mrs Kay and Nikos) managed 3kg.

    However, I am now beinjg inundated with requests to try building with marshmallows and spaghetti. I will tell you later if it was a success.

      Only one?! That’s terrible! Tell them I’m VERY disappointed. I know it’s their parents who have to take them but the students should insist like they do when they want to go somewhere fun!
      How sad!
      Keep working with them
      I hope they get it together and the parents too!
