Feel so sad and shocked and angered to see the photos. Its great that there are people beginning to take action though.  Its great that you could be there and educate and inspire people.  I know the feeling trying to pick up microplastics in the sand - it never ends.

Lovely post.  I have just come back from the beach this morning, and took a friend for the first time.  We both had a great time searching for plastic bits & pieces.  Its a fabulous way to spend your time, always finding something to be delighted by in nature, be it the waves, the birds the shells, and so on.  I know the plastic will keep on coming but I believe its worth picking it up and removing it from harm's way.

Sometimes I think, I wonder how long this has been here.  The consoling thing for me is that I know most of it wasn't here when I was a child.  We just didn't have these plastic things. It was rare. We should be able to reverse what has happened, after all we supposedly such a clever species, but perhaps not so clever if we drown in our own plastic sea.

That's a great initiative Beth.  I don't think Virgin Australia is that advanced, but wish it was.  I hope Richard Branson responds.  Marea from 'No to Plastic'
