From Here to There... Plastic is Everywhere

This evening, I voted in OCEANA's Ocean Hero Awards. One of the nominees writes the blog "The Daily Ocean." For 365 non-consecutive days, she's spending 20 minutes picking up trash off her Santa Monica beach. It's only been 110 days and she's already collected over 450 pounds!! (I just imagine if everyone did that... )

While I was checking out her blog... I came across this video of 2 world traveling surfers... who have discovered something....

No matter WHERE they go... no matter HOW REMOTE a place may seem...

Plastic ALWAYS gets there first.

One of the most important things that we can do is to not pretend this doesn't exist. Once we are conscious to it... we can become conscious to ways that we OURSELVES can become a part of the solution and prevent it.
