- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
First, I think that we should ban paper bags, plastic bags, and plastic wrapping/packing materials.
For the first 20 years of my live I lived at the beach and I can tell you that the beaches (and rivers) in the 70's and 80's didn't have anything near the amount of plastic that the beaches (and rivers) have today.
Unlike the guest, I have seen more than 5-10 plastic bags on the beach. The beaches today are so inundated with plastic that plastic is replacing the sand! Next time you’re at the beach look close and you can see it for your self.
