Garbage doesn't talk, but it says a lot about us... 🥄🍫🚮
🏝️ Wise words painted on a sign nearby our place in cayecaulker, yet it struck me how dirty the little island was, in some places.
🏝️ It shocked me to see bars serving their customers in disposable plastic cups, although the drinks weren't 'to-go'...
🏝️ It shocked me to see tourists snorkeling on the second largest coral reef in the world, yet throw their plastic bottles overboard...🤦♀️
🏝️ Clearly we have a lot to learn, as a species, to respect the planet we live on. 🌎🌍🌏
🏝️ I just hope it won't be too late by the time we finally do...🕗 #pollution#beach#photooftheday#planet#planetearth

Walking on the beach after school, Sarah picks up the trash of a faraway city. Her village of Tingloy has found a new livelihood in hosting tourists come to enjoy their world-famous dive spots. Tingloy sits in the Verde Island Passage, believed to be the center of the center of marine biodiversity in the world; it’s also heavily populated, with economic interests almost as diverse as its wildlife. Eco-tourism helped the community see the beauty of their own home. Local freediver @takvergara does regular clean ups, and kids like Sarah join in. But even with their efforts, more plastic trash comes with the tide, pouring out from the capital of Manila, two hours away, dumped from passing commercial ships, some even traveling from different countries. With 18 billion pounds of plastics ending up in our ocean every year, it’s no surprise the stuff shows up everywhere. It takes 7 minutes to finish a plastic bottle of water and 400 years to make it go away. In this way, one man’s trash becomes a little girl’s problem. ~ @nicolaseabass

For a moment, let's stop criticizing and start doing. Inspire rather than impose. Let the change come from you.
