Happy Friday! ✨ I went to the beach after class today. I decided that today I wanted to expand my mind on the local micro/macroplastics. I knew they were there, but I have never REALLY gotten down on their level here on the island. It’s shocking how easy it is to find all of this, and tons more not pictured. And within such a small amount of beach. The tiniest pieces I kept in the McDonald’s cup: styrofoam/plastic beads and broken bits of plastic. I didn’t walk up and down a stretch of beach to find these. I literally got out of my car, threw a beach towel down, and started looking in the wrack line of the sand (where the high tide washes debris up). That is what’s so crazy. I’m just one person, this is one little patch of beach, and this isn’t even a minor dent. Microplastics are killing marine life, infiltrating our drinking water and food, and leaching chemicals. How is this NOT a problem? Recycle at the very least, but most importantly refuse single use, pay attention to what corporations you’re supporting, speak up for the planet and treat it with respect.
