Coastal Clean Up

Joining a team of volunteers to clean up portions of our shore is a rewarding activity.  In our own little way we had contributed something to mother earth towards a sustainable environment.  It is only disgusting to see some feces wrapped in plastic thrown into the open area.  Some of those residing in these areas have no decent defecation system and still resorted to the open defecation.

  1. That’s really good! I don’t stay near a beach, but my kids and I sometimes bring along some plastic bags and pick up the rubbish along the way when we walk to the park nearby or in the park. It’s not only helping the neighborhood and the environment to be cleaner, but I think it’s a good lesson and activity to do with kids too.

  2. Much of the rubbish that ends up on the shore – including human waste – gets there after being carried by rivers from large population centres. That is where the problem begins and where it needs to be tackled.

      • Let’s not make a mess to start with! My wife and I are living next to very wealthy wasters. They waste anything and they are two individuals. We are two as well but when the refuse goes out for collection on Mondays, their bin is full to the brim. Ours has less than 1/4 of waste. So, how is that? It’s no mystery, one day we checked. Perfectly good shoes and clothing end up there. Half-bottles of sodas and last night’s leftover pizza, one completely untouched and two with half missing That”s how. I wish we could trade lives for one week. I don’t want their stupid lives, I want them to appreciate, like us, what goes into the landfill sites.
