I feel like in a progressive State such as the glory land of California, that we would have a grasp on things such as trash control and water pollution. I have been SO amazed this year by the amount of days I felt like I was surfing in a third world country. Guess I never really noticed before because I had the chance to be picky and only paddle out on the sunny sunshine days when the water is crystally and birds are singing and unicorns fly by. Not really, but in all my life – I never paddled out when I knew the water was foamy with run off.
I am always shoving pieces of floating debris into my wetsuit, a few here and there – hard to let it just float by you. Today I collected over 15 pieces in one short session at Pipes! Crazy. Plastic is one of our Earth’s worst enemy. Most of the pieces were covered in tiny barnacles, so it most likely had been drifting around for a long while. It is one thing to have trash left on the beach or washed up in a storm… but out in the line up?
Plastic sucks. Bad for the environment. Bad for our bodies. Reduce your use wherever possible! Click on the photo to learn more about the Keep A Breast Non Toxic Revolution.
P.S. on a lighter note… ONE MORE WEEK!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!
