On her Instagram story, Kelsey took a video of herself picking up the trash she found while walking along the shore and wrote: “People need to stop throwing plastic/trash in the islands they visit.”
Watch the video below, reposted by the official Twitter fan account of Kelsey:
PSA: DO NOT throw your plastic/trash in the islands that you visit. If you are not responsible enough and you can’t carry your trash with you ‘til you reach a place where there are trash bins, BRING REUSABLE BOTTLES, ETC. !!!

Kelsey has been a vocal advocate of a zero-waste lifestyle, frequently promoting sustainable lifestyle choices and sharing news about pollution.
This isn’t the first time a celebrity has taken to social media to lament the garbage being left at our local beaches. Jasmine Curtis-Smith also previously documented on her Instagram stories all the trash she found while walking along a beach in La Union with her boyfriend Jeff Ortega.
