Raptoberfest is a month long campaign by the Surfrider Founation to help increase awareness about the harm of single use plastics. As an active member of the Central Texas Chapter, I was excited to kickoff the Month long event in my own neighborhood and help cleanup Shoal Creek (that literally borders my backyard). Leyla, Sadie, and I headed out, with a cleanup bag and a video camera, and spent the afternoon cleaning out the mostly dried out creek bed. When we returned home, we managed to fill all 5 Square feet, and were stoked to take 5 square feet of plastic out of our creek. Hopefully we will hit Surfrider's goal of 1,000 square feet this month! Make sure you go out and participate in this great event! Here is the video, and the pictures of the final product below.
