An incredible day spent with some amazing people. We are thoroughly exhausted and hope we helped to make a difference, although with the sheer amount of microplastic still there even after 3 hours of hard work, it's hard to not walk away feeling a little bit defeated. The amount of microplastic and fishing line was overwhelming. The images you see online and in the press don't do the sheer volume justice. And this was one beach, on one island. If this rubbish was whole bottles or large pieces then it probably would feel like a task you could complete...but this was like plastic confetti on a nightmarish scale and I won't lie, 3 hours in I wanted to cry. Recycle, shop smarter and re-use where possible. And if you can, get involved and clean up your local beaches.
