There’s a new social media campaign to help boaters keep our oceans clean in 2021. It’s Boat Trader's national campaign on Instagram called #CleanWake that got kick-started here in South Florida.

Our Kirk Gimenez spoke with Ryan McVinney, Head of Content at Boat Trader, to learn how you can share your boating stories of picking up debris and trash. Watch the interview to learn more.

It's not limited to just boaters, people on the beach and paddle boards can also post their clean up pics by using the #CleanWake and tagging @BoatTraderUSA.

The #CleanWake campaign is also working with South Florida marine experts like Ross Boucek, PhD of the Bonefish &Tarpon Trust, Florida Keys Initiative.
