A Cleaner NC in 2017
A heartfelt plea to my fellow adventurers, please make 2017 the year you take your consciousness to the next level by doing all you can to promote the health and welfare of our precious Mother Earth and the creatures that inhabit her (that includes us).
I live on the NC coast and every single time I have ever been to any of our beautiful beaches, I have picked up trash left by someone else. Yes, that is every single time. Even in the off-season, trash and cigarette butts are all over the ground. What makes it worse is that there are usually containers for recycles, trash, and butts within a few feet of the mess left behind (no, it's not animals foraging in the cans).
This is not only a beach problem, you'll see trash scattered about on the roadways, in parks, and throughout our mountains. North Carolina is a beautiful state that offers so much to enjoy. Please help clean her up and keep her clean. This certainly is not a problem exclusive to our state - as you're well aware - but we can only control our own space, here at home, and wherever else we venture off to. Please join me in my resolve to Reduce * Reuse * Recycle.
