What’s up guys, we’re at Pace Picnic Island and
we got a call to come down and help with some trash. As you can see, the island is
covered in it. There’s like a big carpet. Miami, on average, annually gets about
sixty inches of rainfall. We’ve been getting a ton of rain and lots of storms
and that’s the perfect mixture to kick all this plastic up onto the coastlines. One of the awesome things about Pace Picnic Island, it’s a beautiful place to
come park your boat and party. This is actually a pretty popular island on the
weekends. We’re gonna pick up a lot of bottles and cans and a whole lot of trash
off this island. We’re definitely gonna need a little more backup, so we called in some muscle. Here we go, we got some lights flashing. Miami Police Department
Marine Patrol Pace Picnic Island, you’re under arrest. Where are these guys from? They’re our police explorers. Police explorers! Tell me about it. It’s a youth based program for who has ambition to be police officers. That’s great man, that’s what it’s all about. Get the community involved. Six of Miami’s finest out here,
we’re gonna crush this island. We’re excited to be here, you can get the
message out there to the public and to everyone, stop polluting. They’re gonna be
doing some diving, we’re gonna be up in the mangroves picking up all this trash
and we’re gonna have a good day. Yew. There’s like a big carpet. Come on. Yeah, it’s a carpet sack. A carpet sack. Holy cow! Ready? Let’s go, go! Keep going! That’s somebody’s living room. Nice work! High five. We moved it, ya know The kick game on Picnic Island is pretty strong.
Check it out, we got water shoes. Some fancy, going out to the ball. Got
another pair of flip-flops. Nikes. So all in all, five pairs of shoes left out here
after partying. So down there we got a lot of bottles,
aluminum cans, wrappers. You pull one bottle out,
there’s another one right there waiting for you. You got an entire thing of
Thai food in here. Plastic container. Plastic utensil. Crown Royal. A lot of
people see that every morning, huh? American Airlines tag. Cigarette butt.
Bottle caps. Cigarillo. Straws. That’s like two minutes of picking up in just one little area, and we’ve barely made a dent. Money lighter! That is a money lighter. So make it rain, let’s say “make it go in the trash.” What do we say to straws? No straw please. Zip ties. We’ve got a suspect on the loose. I found lettuce. Lettuce?! Let us investigate. Should we get this out of the environment? Let’s lock it up. We’ve got some evidence. It’s a straw! We can still drink without a straw, can’t we? I do it. That’s my favorite. Clean ocean! Somebody call code six over here. What are you guys finding? What’s that, dental floss right there? It all makes its way to the ocean. Do we dare open it? Another plastic utensil. Snack wrappers. Plastic bags. Glass beer bottles, bottle caps. [simultaneously] Lighters! Ballpoint pen. Another pen. Second offense, write em up. Ow! I’ve been assaulted. Ouch. [Found] a couple socks, a lot of beer bottles, cans. No bueno. Bottles, cups, forks. How long you been in there? About ten minutes. We’re rocking and rolling Marine Patrol Unit out diving in the water. They’re filling up sacks left and right. We’ve got 4ocean up and down the beach. We need the dust kit. Is it definitely the bottom? Maybe it is the top. Hey, here we go. Future detective! Let’s get the plastic. Look at all this stuff that they pulled out. It’s what you see everyday with sea turtles, and dolphins, sharks, whales, everything getting caught up in that. Glad we’re getting it out. Oh you got a little sifter. Finding plastic. Look at this. Pow! You can run but you can’t hide. You can walk right behind a group of people and they can be picking up the entire time, and where their feet have kicked up dirt, there’s more plastic underneath. It’s just everywhere. You guys did a great job setting this up. We appreciate you. That’s an official wrap here at Pace Picnic Island. We’ve got the Miami Police Department, we’ve got the Explorers Club, and we had a really successful day. 4ocean. That’s right, thanks for coming out! Woo! [Cheers] When people ask you about what these bracelets are, you tell them it’s a commitment to a cleaner ocean. You can talk to them about 4ocean and just hopefully spread the message. Nudge don’t judge. If we can all just get out and just nudge people in the right direction, then we’re making a good difference, right? Thanks for your help. How’d we do? I’d say pretty bomb. Pretty bomb work. Definitely made a difference. Yeah it felt good. We could probably spend hours on here. There’s still so much, things that have so much growth on it. This is just one pile of many. Plastic cup. Of course, plastic water bottles. These can be easily replaced
with a reusable bottle. Styrofoam products, cigarette packs, plastic utensils. Tons of bottle caps. All sorts of stuff. You name it, it’s out here. Items you use every single day. Obey the laws of Pace Picnic Island, or pay the price.
