Just one more piece….and another…and another…
I can no longer walk along a beach (or river) without having the irresistible urge to pick up litter. It’s amazing how quickly your mindset can change when you suddenly wake up to the fact that we are gradually choking our planet. Well, I say gradually but in the grand scheme of things, when you consider the age of our planet, mankind has brought our world to the brink of ecological disaster in less than the blink of an eye. A terrifying thought! Can we reverse the damage we’ve done? Probably not. Does it mean we shouldn’t then try? Of course not!
With a population of 7 billion and growing I fear we may be too late to turn the tide, especially without a major change in global attitudes to the welfare of our planet. The only way we are going to do that is by working together and influencing those around us. We all start with baby steps. Little changes. Little changes that can grow and pollinate others, gradually spreading the seeds of change far and wide.
Crikey, that was getting a bit heavy!….back to the beach.
Here’s Deb in full beach clean mode, bin bag in hand looking for plastic and other litter.
