IT IS truly amazing how many plastic drink bottles one sees along otherwise pristine beaches, river fronts, bush trails, and, of course roadsides.
What is even more amazing is the lack of intelligence of those who discard these containers.
Most culprits just don't care, but some probably think because they are recyclable, they will just melt away and problem solved.
As these plastic bottles are said to last 450 years, just imagine what our beaches will look like in that time.
Won't it be lovely walking along the beachfront with the feeling of plastic oozing up through your toes?
