Before sitting down to write this post, I caught up on reading The Daily Ocean... and seems that as usual Sara and I are on the same wavelength. After doing so many beach clean ups, what the heck is there to say about the same litter picked up over and over again?? It's difficult sometimes. Sometimes, I'll come back from the beach with too much to say... then other times... well, the words are lacking. Tonight, I asked my friend Tracy, "What do I say??" She said, "Come on people... pick your shit up!!! :)" That works, though I think I've said that before. (Yup)
Whether we're the ones who made the mess or not... it's so very important that we take the time to pick it up. Last week, I was reading about the death of a gray whale whose stomach was filled with plastics... everything from duct tape to a Capri Sun. Soooooo sad :(
Everything we do (or don't do) impacts the world we live in. It's true.
