Instead of waking up late yesterday, triplets Gillian, Gracie and Gareth Goh headed to Pasir Ris Park at 9am.
But unlike other beachgoers, the 10-year-olds were busy picking up litter with metal tongs and buckets.
The siblings - who went with their parents - were part of a group of 20 volunteers participating in a new initiative called Love Our Coast.
It was started by local food and beverage company Georges @ The Cove to engage the community in protecting the coastline and the sea from plastic waste.
In yesterday's first beach clean-up under the initiative, participants first attended an interactive workshop by a coastal protection researcher from Our Singapore Reefs, a community of divers who raise awareness about conserving coral reefs.
They then spent an hour picking up rubbish, netting 1,357 pieces that weighed 17.5kg. The clean-up at Pasir Ris beach will be held every last Sunday of the month.
