instead of being "sad" go get a dip net and scoop the trash up... As a live aboard you should take care of your surrounding areas. If you lived in a house would you let trash accumulate on your lawn?
I try to pick up trash when I can...but after a storm, there's just too much to be able to get it all. Sadly I don't have that kind of time.It makes me sad because it makes me think about the amount of trash accumulation in the world. Society is still all about consuming, buying new things, better things, useless things...We're making an honest effort to try and reduce the amount of trash we make. Living aboard limits that by only allowing us to have so much *stuff*. Also, I've been trying very hard to make as much from scratch as I can, thereby eliminating wrappers, baggies, etc.We're certainly not perfect, but we're trying.
