Re: Garbage Island

Every time we go for a sail we come across plastic bottles ... not good and not much we can do about it but it doesn't justify us throwing our rubbish overboard. Equally so I feel simply because our neghbours are grubs does not mean we have to be as well.

Less plastic would be good ? No doubt and reusable bags for groceries is one way to cut back on plastic usage. When we do end up with plastic bags then use them for trash collectioninstead of putting them into another plastic garbage bag.

Glass and aluminium containers will break down in the ocean and they don't float. So much better than plastic.

Hell, it is not all that difficult is it ? I simply do not understand why it is such an issue.
