If You Give a Blogger a Dirty Beach…

The Breakers Resort, Palm Beach

 

If you give a blogger a dirty beach…

She’ll ask for a trash bag.

If you give her a trash bag,

She’ll collect all the garbage she can.

 

And then she’ll vlog about it.

Only her phone sucks and she got cut off.

But you get the gist of it.

Clean it up, people. Even if you didn’t make the mess.

 

I hate plastic.

    I could not agree more! We all need to be responsible with this planet we live on.

    Completely gross. Seriously. I try to clean up, too. It can be hard when there is something nasty and my kiddo wants to pick it up, we try to explain (ie: broken glass, unsafe) and work to clean where we can. Good for you, mama, for making a difference in some way.

    Ugh! You’re touching on a major pet peeve of mine. When I lived at the beach and used to take my dog walking there, I would end up filling her poop bags with trash. Then I just took a trash bad with me every time. KILLED me the things people would leave on the beach.

      Alison,

      Perhaps only adorable in the sense that my vlog-making abilities are ZILCH. I really need to work on that. Sorry for the late reply, just had surgery and am playing catch up!

    You are kind of like my hero with this post. I try to instill in my family that even though some people don’t care we can still care and try to make a difference. One person can make a difference and hopefully after people read this post they will be more likely to do the same.

    awesome! It is so sad that we can’t keep our world looking a little nicer. And I love how you structured the post. My kids love those books ;)

    Hey, have you linked up at Write on Edge? This totally works with the “sand” prompt for Red Writing Hood :)

      Carrie,

      I linked up with WOE right after you posted this—and then had surgery, and so I didn’t get to return the favor or go see anyone else’s posts. must do so soon. Thanks for letting me know.

      p.s. my kids love those books, too!

    You are awesome.
    I don’t understand how people are so inconsiderate.
    It’s our holiday weekend and I’m dreading what “rare” finds Chunky will pick up. Gross.

      Kimberly,

      people are just plain rude and lazy, i think. and it’s very sad…

    This is so true!  And you didn’t need to use nearly the 450 words to convey the idea.  If all of us who care keep it up maybe others will catch on and things may change.

      Wisper,

      Sorry for the late reply, just had surgery. I hope everyone does catch on…
