Don't Be A Litter Bug

Tuesday, 9 June 2020

I am not an environmentalist by any stretch of the imagination. I do not have to be an environmentalist to be irritated by the thoughtlessness of my fellow humans. Why would you go to the beach and leave your garbage??? I didn't see any trash cans, but most people are arriving to this beach by car. Put your trash in your car and toss it in the trash when you get home. The animals don't deserve your trash in their home. The people who want to enjoy this beach don't deserve to have to pick up your trash. And certainly, no one deserves to be injured by your trash.

Here are my children playing with someone's discarded lunchmeat container next to the remnants of a burn pile. 

This is not ok. People, we have to do better. If you take it with you to your outdoor adventure, make sure you take it back home with you.

This burn pile has left HUNDREDS, maybe even THOUSANDS of rusty nails all over the beach. When the tide comes in, it reaches the pile and spreads the nails and other debris all over.
