I am so fed up with all the trash people toss out of their cars on the road to the beach. I thought I’d document some of it and indulge in a little rant at the same time.
I’d love to know who does this. I never actually see anyone throwing entire bags of beer cans or fast food remnants out their car windows. They must do it at night.
All I know is, there’s far too much of it, and some things, like plastic bags, can end up in the water where sea turtles mistake them for jellyfish, eat them and die.
Our neighborhood association does clean-ups along the beach road a few times every summer. It astounds me how fast the trash accumulates again.
So disrespectful, and so disgusting.
But wait! After writing this, I took a walk down to the beach on Earth Day, and there were volunteers picking up all the trash! I especially enjoyed seeing one of them pile all his stuffed garbage bags…..into his Hummer!!!!!
There is hope — I guess.
