Plastic, plastic, plastic everywhere.
Our dependency on single use plastic is overwhelming now. Bottled water seems like the natural choice when someone wants water. Heaps of new plastic bags come back to the house each time someone comes back from shopping.
I spend a good deal of time at the beach now, taking photos of surfers. One of the islands I go to often is the uninhabited island of Thamburudhoo, where you get one of the best surfing breaks in Male atoll. Sultans and Honkies. The island is mostly rocky and is home to a lot of birds and hermit crabs.
A few weeks back I was shocked to see so much plastic washed up on the shore of Thamburudhoo. I decided to clean it up as much as I can, little by little. If not me, then who?
