Who created National beach Day? Colleen Paige

Then in 2014, Colleen Paige, pet and family lifestyle expert, created National Beach Day to celebrate beaches and the importance of keeping them clean.

Everyone loves a good day at the beach, right? Celebrate your affinity for the coast on August 30,  National Beach Day.  Started in  2014,  this holiday raises our awareness of the beauty of  beaches while also calling attention to keeping them clean and safe.

Here’s how you can help: after enjoying the beach, leave nothing behind.  Keep animals from getting trapped or tangled in trash, on land and in the water.  So, swim, dive, surf, and take in the world’s aquatic playgrounds. Just remember to do your part to protect one of our most cherished natural resources — our beaches.

What do you do on National beach Day?

Play games such as Frisbee or volleyball, have a picnic lunch or dinner together, search for unique shells and sea glass - these are all perfect ways to catch up and spend quality time with family and friends!
