Because of the wind, we didn't find many cigarette butts...but we did find a LOT of other litter including other smoking related debris such as lighters.
photos of all of the lighters that have been found on Midway .... There are so many things that can be learned from what's happening at Midway... including the fact that we are ALL connected. Our actions (or inactions) are far reaching.
Zak and I were discussing the fact that the one year anniversary of the Deep Water Horizon Oil spill is just around the corner. I wonder if people have forgot... I wonder after a year of one of the worst man made environmental disasters if we've learned anything? What have we changed?? What CAN we change?? Hmmm.... it's time we start demanding a Clean Energy Future.
As we were walking back from the beach strand, my daughter pointed out a plastic bag. Being barefoot, there was NO WAY that I could get it. BUT... lucky for us... Zak had shoes. :)
