Have you heard about the campaign "Boycott the Baggie"?? It's a small step to stop using one disposable product a day. It's a commitment that I made years ago... more years than I remember. I'm wondering if my kids even know what they are... hmmm... they definitely know what they look like...
My tip for being forgetful: If you forget. Go without.
Trust me... go without enough and that whole remembering thing will catch on. ;)
As I'm thinking about it... nearly everything we pick up at the beach is a single use disposable product. Cigarettes, baggies, cups, plastic utensils, lids, individually wrapped foods, straws... the list goes on and on. What will you REFUSE today?? May I make a suggestion... how about saying no thank you to a straw in your drink?? (please and thank you)

Sooo.... just after I took the "group" photo of all the litter we removed from Wrightsville Beach... my husband and I watched a man fiddle around with his fishing line. It was a complete tangled mess. Such a mess that he got out his pocket knife and cut it free.... immediately dropped it to the ground and never once looked back....
