Plastic on the beach

I just returned from a trip to coastal Ecuador and guess what the beach was littered with? Plastic. All kinds of plastic. Plastic shoes, buckets and bottles. Especially plastic bottles.

I see this everywhere I go and there seems to be more and more of it. In fact, the only beach I have ever visited that didn’t have any plastic or other marine debris on it was Ningaloo, Australia.

Where do all of these plastic bottles come from?  Us.
