Trawl to Trash

In an effort to prevent litter from entering the marine environment, Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant launched the Trawl to Trash program, which engages the public in outreach and stewardship activities that educate communities about the impacts of marine debris and encourage use of the recycled trawl bags to collect and remove debris from Georgia’s waterways.

Join us on Tuesday, July 16th, 1 – 2 PM, to learn how to prevent litter from entering the marine environment and inspire behavior change in Georgia’s coastal communities, ultimately reducing the negative impacts of marine debris on the coast. Program participants will learn how to construct their own trawl to trash bags using recycled shrimp net material so that it can be used to collect marine debris along the coast!  This is a family-friendly program, geared toward an audience of age 8 and up. 

Thanks to support from the National Sea Grant College Program, Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant is able to provide this Trawl to Trash Program in our community.
