Create Your Own Sand Sifter 

In addition to decorating your own bucket, you can further emphasize REUSE by decorating your own milk jug to use at the cleanup.  You can simply decorate and bring a milk jug, or create your own milk jug sand sifter to remove the smaller pieces of plastic and those pesky cigarette butts out of the sand at your cleanup site.  Help us practice the 3 R's, Recycle, Reduce, Reuse at this year's Coastal Cleanup Day by following the milk jug sand sifter project below. 

Materials:
  1. Plastic milk gallon or water jugwinner_4.2
  2. Duct tape
  3. Scissors
  4. One piece of window screen (most hardware stores have screen)
Directions:
  1. Wash and dry plastic jug
  2. Cut off the top of the jug in an oval shape without cutting off the jug's handle. It is best to cut the jug on a stable surface to prevent any accidents.
  3. Place the 6x6 inch screen on top of the hole. Carefully tape the screen with duct tape to the jug, securing the screen as tightly as possible to the jug.
  4. Cut out the bottom of the jug and put tape around all the edges. (To cover all sharp edges) 
  5. Clean the beach! You are now ready to filter small bits of plastic, cigarette butts and other kinds of plastic by scooping sand and sifting it through the wire screen. You can now find all the trash hidden
