@Regrann from @vegans_are_fucking_awesome - This is why I go out to the beach almost weekly now. I can do something about this. I may be one person but I can still do SOMETHING to try and combat this plastic and garbage dilemma that infiltrates all of our land and oceans and earth. This is a problem of colossal size and we see it all around us, EVERY DAY.... do we not? The plastic bags and plastic bottles and plastic plastic plastic is EVERYWHERE flying around on the streets, in our backyards, hung on trees, hung around the necks and limbs of innocent animals! And WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. I too am responsible for this! I am not going to lie and say that I am completely #plasticfree but I am doing my best to get there knowing what I know now and how detrimental this issue is. So I will do my part to eliminate purchasing and using plastic in my life. I will address the issue and raise awareness on how we can tackle this on our own. I will organize #beachcleanups and get out there and pick up the most unbelievable trash that human beings leave behind after they have their fun and thrills at the beach. With their friends. With their families. Or alone. The amount of broken pieces from beer bottles that I find out there is maddening!.... especially with children running around barefooted. And cigarette butts which are more hazardous than anyone could imagine.
We are getting together tomorrow at #CONEYISLAND #Brooklyn #NYC with @projectlovemovement for another #beachcleanup. Every extra pair of hands truly does make a difference. If you've never done this before, if you've always wanted to, IF THIS MAKES SENSE TO YOU, please come out and join us. It really makes a difference and ANYONE, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, class, all that nonsense -- ANYONE is able to do this and be a part of change. Please consider coming out tomorrow. I hope more people will understand the importance of TAKING DIRECT ACTION. This is all new for me too. I've never been this type of person to be this vocal about community and activism, but I can't sit still anymore. I can't know all this is happening and NOT do something about it.
If not you, who? If not now, when?
