Cleanups remove hazards from our shorelines, raise awareness, connect communities, save marine animals, preserve our natural treasures, keep toxic chemical out of the water and create a safer and greener environment for us and for future us.

PURPOSE
To clean up local beach, advocate on environment preservation, spread & share about Nouns DAO and our nounish ethos.

BENEFITS TO THE DAO
Charitable and green initiatives allow Nouns DAO to reach out to audience who are generous and kind at heart to begin with, to share the mission of proliferation of Nouns branding.

Sounds like a pretty cool thing to do at a reasonable price. Which beach do you have in mind? Could you incorporate getting a photographer to generate some media that could be shared?

This is awesome!
Small price to pay, especially with someone capturing the event to share online and potentially spark more of this globally.

This is great, knowing the beach is a place that is sometimes overlooked because of its cleanliness, I personally don’t really pay much attention to this but in the end it will definitely have an impact.
