Having lived on islands and in various countries over the last few years, I have seen how plastic and household waste can travel across the world. Items wash up years later either still whole or as tiny crumbling microplastics! Beach cleans are one step to stop the build-up and help clean up the community but there has to be more. We need to educate, take responsibility and all be part of the change!
