"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Beach Cleanup

The project:
Pick up trash - what else?

15 minutes?

Why bother?
We had a great day at the beach, but it's hard to be there and just step over the trash, so I picked it up - a diaper, a pair of underwear, plastic bottles, suntan lotion bottles full and empty, food containers, wrappers, odds n' ends.

Worth it?
Sure, it makes our beach more enjoyable. I wish people would take their OWN trash, of course.
