Active beach love

For some years now I have been cleaning the plastic rubbish I see when I am on the beach exercising, walking or on my way somewhere. I do this now largely without judgment or agenda but I went through a whole process before I felt able to peaceably beach clean whenever I can. When I began to notice the shear volume of rubbish from day to day seemingly waiting for me, I felt angry and despairing about the ignorance of all ‘those people’ who litter, who don’t seem to care, who perpetuate the crazy systems we live within whereby its ‘normal’ to use something once and ‘throw it away’. ‘Away where?!’ I ranted to myself, writes Marybeth Haas.
