Spent the day clearing rubbish from the beaches of Stormy Down and Ogmore today. A good humoured affair and the rain kept off until right till the very end. It would appear that the world is to be drowned in old shoe inserts, bottle tops and tampax applicators. Still; the beaches did seem cleaner and I think we all felt pretty good about that despite the rain. It’s a beautiful part of the world and deserves to be kept clean as much for the aesthetics as for the animal life it ruins.
I took a few today, mainly of my old and somewhat depressing muse, Pyle train station. However, getting off the train on the way home my eye was drawn to this interesting question. For me the question should be rather, a world without packaging and litter. Luckily, this litter was where it should be; in the bin.
