At MSGW, we're all about having a great time and making lasting memories. But as we come together to celebrate, it's important to remember to "Love The Coast" and do our part to protect the environment we're enjoying.

One way to show your love for the Mississippi Gulf Coast is by being mindful of your environmental impact. This can mean recycling whenever possible and disposing of trash properly. When spending time at the beach, be sure to bring a bag with you to collect any trash you see and dispose of it in a nearby trash can. You can also participate in organized beach cleanups to help keep the coast beautiful for years to come.

Another way to reduce your environmental impact is by choosing eco-friendly transportation options, such as carpooling or using public transportation. Not only will this help reduce air pollution, but it can also save you money on gas and parking.

By taking these small steps, we can all do our part to protect the Mississippi Gulf Coast and ensure that it remains a beautiful and vibrant destination for generations to come. So let's all "Love The Coast" and enjoy all the natural beauty it has to offer while preserving it for future generations.
