We have come across some wonderful beaches on our travels and today was no exception. But today’s image has a sad edge to it, because in the photo you’ll see one of our bags filled with plastic collected in a short 20 minute walk.
It is also sadly ironic that where we are stopping tonight has another wonderful beach yet dogs are not supposed to go on it.
We are responsible dog owners who care for our planet, always pick up if the dog happens to mess, and as mentioned done a beach clean picking up rubbish deposited by humans, not dogs.
Should we not ban humans from the beaches as they seem to do more damage than our canine friends – Rant over…..
Next time you go to the beach take a bag and do a little collecting of plastic. It needn’t take long, you’ll be exercise the tummy muscles and back by bending over, you’ll be protecting our seas and the aquatic creatures that live in it, and you’ll appreciate just how polluted our planet is becoming.
I know this is addressing the symptom, and not root cause (people not thinking about rubbish) but at least it’s a step in the right direction.
If you already do this – THANK YOU!!!
