Our high school teaches our students the importance of community service and provides opportunities for service projects. In fact, we require our students to perform community service each school year. We live in the coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas, and we are concerned about our beaches. Recently a group of our students participated in the Adopt A Beach program, filling many bags of debris found on the beach. The students also learned how long beach debris takes to decompose. For example, a plastic bottle can take 450 years to decompose.
