The following essay was authored by Abby.



We got to Santa Monica Beach with the bus driver. When we were at the beach, it was fun picking up trash. My teacher, classmates and I cleaned with rubber gloves on and put the trash into bags. We found lots of trash like cigarettes, glass, and bottle caps. My classmates and I ate after we picked up trash. Then we played for a little while so we could have fun. I learned to pick up trash when you’re on the beach. I learned that when you go to the beach, you pick up trash with gloves and bags. Everyday, everywhere, people should not litter the ground.

We went to Santa Monica Beach. When we got there, the beach looked dirty. A lot of people were living at the beach and it looked like they never cleaned up their mess. When my mom and I saw a blanket that a person lays on, we saw an empty wine bottle. My mother and I found a lot of cigarette butts. We used rubber gloves to pick up the trash. When we were close to the water, my friend, her mom, my mom and I picked up seaweed and we put it into the bag. When I got my second bag to fill, it was almost time for lunch. We used the restroom and washed our hands. We had to wash our hands because they were dirty from picking up trash and we had used the bathroom. Some classmates filled up their rubber gloves with sand and that was wasteful. We ate lunch on the beach. After we ate, we stayed on the beach and we saw greedy seagulls and dolphins in the water. I picked up some seashells to make something for my Nanna. When we got on the bus, we were quieter than when we were going there because we were sad. We were sad because we had to leave the beach and there was still more trash on the beach. I learned that when the seagulls don’t have food to eat, they get very greedy and they try to get our food. I also learned that when you litter, it feels like we’re not cared for.

We went to Santa Monica Beach. There were cigarettes in the sand. The fish are going to die because of all the cigarettes going into the sea. We were given four bags each and two pairs of plastic gloves. We picked up glass bottles, cigarettes and plastic. The beach looked cleaner when we finished picking up trash. I learned that you should not throw trash in the sea and you should not litter.



The following essay was authored by Chris.



We went to Santa Monica Beach to clean up. When we got there, I felt bad. I found fifty cigarettes and clothes. I liked cleaning up the litter. I got tired, but I kept on trying. I learned that you should not litter. I do not like to litter. I do not want to have the animals killed because it will be bad. The animals will think the trash is food and they will die.

There were a lot of cigarettes on the beach. It was still dirty when we left the beach. We were tired. We should keep the environment clean!

The following essay was authored by Emma.



We went to Santa Monica Beach. There were lots of plastic and bottles. We found cigarettes. If the sea creatures eat the garbage, they will die. We will not be happy if the sea creatures die. If we let the sea creatures eat food left on the beach, we will be sad. After we cleaned up the beach, we felt slimy. We went back to the bus and all of us were tired. We went back to school. Then it was dismissal. We all had fun.



The following essay was authored by Genesis.



We went on the bus to Santa Monica Beach. When we got to the beach, we started to pick up trash. My mom and I said that it did not look dirty, but when we started to look, it was very dirty. The last time I went to the beach, I saw a dead jellyfish. My dad put it in a bag and I was sad. Now I know that we should not throw trash in the ocean and should always put it into a trashcan.

We went to Santa Monica Beach. The beach looked like there wasn’t that much trash. But when we started walking, we saw so much trash. There were so many cigarettes, even though it said no smoking on the trashcans. We put on rubber gloves. We picked up trash. We put the trash in bags to clean the environment. We ate lunch on the beach. We played around. When we had to leave, I was thinking that the beach was clean, but it really wasn’t. I learned that we have to keep our environment clean and never throw trash on the ground.

The following essay was authored by Kaylen.



We went to Santa Monica Beach. When we first got to the beach, we did not see any trash. But when we started to walk around the beach, we saw lots of trash. Then we started putting on rubber gloves and getting our bags. When we were cleaning up, we saw lots of cigarettes, glass, clothes and paper. When we were finished, the beach was still not clean.

The following essay was authored by Lucy.



We went to Santa Monica Beach to clean up. When we got to the beach, it was dirty. When we cleaned at the beach, we put on rubber gloves and picked up more trash. When we picked up trash, we had 50 bags. As we worked, the beach was getting much cleaner. When we finished picking up the trash, we had an early lunch. We played all around, all over the beach and found seashells. My theme is to tell all of the people not to throw their trash on the ground or the sea because birds, animals, fish, shark, and whales will think that it’s food and they will die. I learned to throw our trash in the trashcan or the animals will die from it.
