Join Hands Across The Sand in Two Topsail Beach Locations


Hands Across The Sand in Two Topsail Beach Locations

Held annually each May, Hands Across The Sand (and there's one for Hands Across the Land, too, just FYI) draws a line in the sand—literally and figuratively—taking a stand against offshore drilling, seismic testing/blasting and dirty fossil fuels, and their negative impact on the coastal waters and shorelines. Those who choose to gather for the event show their solidarity and support for cleaner, greener energy and positive ways to protect our planet and its future. It's held on a local, national and global scale in an effort to speak out against some of these harmful practices.

Sound like something you can support? Great! All you have to do is show up! All Hands Across The Sand events are held on the same date at the same time. This year's event is slated for Saturday, May 21, 2016 starting at 11:30a.m. All you need to know is the location of your local event. We can help you with that. Read on!

Here are the 3 easy steps you need to take to join hands in this year's Hands Across The Sand event.

STEP 1
Go to the event at 11:30a.m. for one hour, rain or shine.

STEP 2
Join hands for 15 minutes at 12 noon, forming lines in the sand, or on the land, against dirty fuels. Say yes to clean energy and renewables.

STEP 3
Leave only your footprints. In addition, consider getting involved in a local organization that supports clean energy.

Other Things To Think About

The environmental decisions and consequences not only affect people, but all of the marine life from fish to birds to mammals, not to mention Topsail's beloved sea turtle population. May begins sea turtle nesting season on Topsail Island, so in our efforts to protect and maintain the lives of these valuable reptiles of the sea, we ask that you consider how some of these decisions may help or hurt them, too.
