We recently had our annual beach clean and collected 20 bin bags of litter!
Cath commented that this seems a lot.
It is a lot.
Our village has almost a mile of beach to clean, strung out as it is along the shores of the loch, from the houses on the far left of the photograph to where I am standing at the sandy beach, and because it is a sea loch litter gets washed in with the tides. (Some of it also gets washed out again..to land on some other beach, or to come back to ours another day!)
Winter storms are particulary bad for depositing rubbish on the shore paths as well as the shore itself.
But if we don't do it, who will?
I hate litter.
