For me, beach cleans have a magical power. They can make time disappear within the blink of an eye. I ended up spending an hour collecting the first bag of rubbish. I could have collected it a lot quicker but why rush?! You’re out in the fresh air, strolling on a beach, what could be better? Oh yeah, the only problem is you’ve forgotten you’re supposed to be in the office working!
One of the advantages of being self employed is that you can be flexible. The boss can have a moan but what’s he going to do? Fire you?!
My big problem is I can’t walk away. I can’t leave knowing that there is still plastic and other rubbish laying around. So, as usual, I decide to carry on the beach clean as I head back towards the car.
BANG! Before you know it another hour has passed, but at least I’ve cleared another bag of potential death traps for some unsuspecting wildlife.
And, as I reach the car there is nothing more satisfying than dumping all of the rubbish collected in the bin.
