Last week we were very lucky to spend a few days cruising in one of Hong Kong’s most remote locations with beautiful beaches and hardly a sole in sight. But that only shows half of the story - the heartbreaking reality is that this remote beach was covered in plastic and disused fishing nets. We managed to fill 5 hessian sacks in an afternoon but it’s barely scratched the surface. Whilst it is is easy to point fingers, it seems that the majority of the plastic comes from Mainland China - from companies that don’t distribute in Hong Kong. What can be done about this? Is naming and shaming going to do anything? Any way to reach out to these companies and show them the destruction they are causing?? #cestbon#ganten#plasticpollution#endplasticpollution#fuckplastic#litter#ghostnets#beaches#environment#beachcleanup#plasticocean#plasticoceans#plasticfreeoceans#saveourseas

Earlier this year during a road 10K on an out-and-back course on the way out I saw a piece of paper. I didn't pick it up because it was during the race and I thought well we're all racing. On the way back I saw the same piece of paper and a woman in the race in front of me been down and picked it up. After the finish I went up to her and I told her she was my favorite racer that day because of what she did and she told me well you have to keep your Trail Karma. Yesterday was my birthday and so I celebrated today by doing a really steep trail race. And even out in the middle of nowhere I still found a wrapper, but this time I bent down and picked it up. #one_piece_each #litter#running#race#ride#cycling#hiking#ecology#jogging#fishing#mtb
First @barreworks_studio_redondo beach cleanup was a success! 7 lovely ladies picked up 9.1 lbs. of litter (including 200+ cigarette butts 🚬🗑🌊👯♀️) thank you to @terranearesort for letting us borrow trash grabbers!
