Plastic Choking BeachesPosted on January 23, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
A recent walk along the Esplanade in Melbourne over the weekend found a lot of plastic debris blown up and caught in a scrub bush. See this video. By anyones standards this is unacceptable. Once it had been collected it and laid out on the footpath for passers by to see, you could see the look of disgust they gave. How many would have done anything about it though? Until we get enough people willing to say this is unacceptable and will make the effort to do something about it, be it pick it up, notify their local council, send pictures to the local media to print, and stopping from buying plastic items, then scenes similar to what this video shows will still be a common site.
