Shuck, Don't Chuck-Click to See Awesome Shell Recycling Project!
One of our favorite parts of scalloping is the cleaning, or shucking, of the scallops. This is when you essentially get the meat that you eat out, and you are left with 2 scallop shells. As you can imagine, it is pretty easy to accumulate a good amount of these shells.

Their campaign is called, "Shuck don't Chuck"!
