Thread: Plastic Bottles

  1. #1

    Plastic Bottles

    Just wanted to share the good vibes and say that I try and pick up a plastic bottle every time I surf and put it in the trash. Along with plastic bags, plastic bottles are among the most prevalent sources of pollution found on our beaches. (Ocean Conservency)

    If every single surfer picked up one plastic bottle after a session I think it's a small token of thanks to give back for the hours of stoke we get from the ocean.

    Have a great weekend!
    Peace

    Can't agree more! Got smacked in the chest with a 2 liter filled with sand one time. That sh*t ruins your session, not to mention the beach!

    I live in a deposit state so every can or bottle I pick up is like finding small change on the beach...

    the water bottle caps are the worst. i collect them in a bag, then send them to aveda to get recycled. they turn them into shampoo bottle caps and stuff

    I pick up any trash I see. However, I pick up waaaaay more while fishing. Found some cool stuff over the years amongst the literal hundreds of pounds I have plucked from the ocean offshore.

    I always leave the beach with a few more items than then when I came there. Taught this to my eight year old daughter...who is completely flabbergasted and disgusted that people litter.
