Not confined to just tourist destinations, many beaches around the world are littered with plastic debris, often propelled by ocean currents from faraway places. Beautiful isolated, sparsely inhabited islands suffer the consequences of irresponsible modern day rubbish disposal to the detriment of their inhabitants and economies.
Plastic bottles, bags and sheet materials, MicroBeads and surface debris litter our oceans in huge quantities. Some take years to arrive on our shores. En-route they kill whales, fish, turtles and birds, to eventually land ashore as testament to irresponsible off-shore dumping, manufacturing and disposal. Out of sight, out of mind is not an excuse.
