THE BEACH BOYS TRIBUTE

JUNE 14, 2019

CHECK IT OUT!

Living on Tybee is a blessing and for those of us lucky enough to live here, we treasure our little piece of happy paradise with a fierce pride. However, one of the fallbacks of living here is our influx of visitors that, during the summer, can be truly overwhelming at times. Lots of visitors come here to enjoy what we call home, and with that comes humanity and a never-ending ability to pick up one’s trash and leave nothing but one’s footprints. Everyone is to blame for this… whether you drop your cigarette butt in the sand, leave a dirty diaper on the sidewalk and/or watch any of it happening without speaking up. Fortunately for Tybee, we have Tybee Clean Beach and these people refuse to take this trash lying down and are front and center to help educate and promote anti-litter and to grab their sticks and buckets and get out there to do something about it.  

   

I had an opportunity to sit down with Tim Arnold, the mastermind behind Tybee Clean Beach, and get the trash talk about Tybee. But first, I participated in my first beach sweep on a June Sunday afternoon. I am ashamed to admit that I have never taken my time to do this before, so armed with my own pick-up stick and bucket, I set out with Mac McLellan and a determination to do my part. Twenty minutes later I realized I shouldn’t be holding that stick and bucket because I wanted to start swinging! I know… but once you get out there and pick up dirty diapers, glass bottles, a million and four cigarette butts, and an astonishing variety of just yuck, you start to get mad. What saved me from running screaming were the all the other volunteers that were there. From Mom, Dad and the kids, to a Vietnam Vet, beach bums, surfers, and random tourists, they were all a variety of random humanity with one intent. That one weekend involved 29 volunteers from the Cub Scouts on Saturday, 12 Girl Scouts on Sunday morning and 72 volunteers that Sunday night.
