A Word A Week Photograph Challenge – Run

Posted by Jody on March 11, 2014

“All the rivers run into the sea,
Yet the sea is not full;
To the place from which the rivers come,
There they return again.”

~ Ecclesiastes

“Land-based discharges of human-made debris comprise the largest source of marine debris in oceans world-wide (nearly 80%). The Plastic Debris, Rivers to Sea Project seeks to minimize the land-based discharges of marine debris. Just like ocean-based marine debris, land-based discharges of human-made debris are comprised mostly of plastics.”

    Or, start your own cleanup! A group of friends and I take a “river wall” every year between 2 local rivers. We drop our cars off at the stopping point and have someone drive us up river about 5 miles. Then we walk down collecting garbage as we go. The person in the car meets us at various points (because sadly, many times we fill up garbage bags before the end) and we place them in the trunk. I’ll have a whole post about it later this year!!! GREAT JOB!!!
