Clean as you go

To the editor:

It would be nice if people walking the beaches looking for that perfect sea shell, would pick up a piece of plastic, or fishing line along with their seashells. All the plastic and fishing lines that are on the beach will eventually make it into the ocean.

Turtles mistake plastic for jelly fish. Dolphins, manatees, turtles and sea birds become entangled in fishing lines. The consequences are deadly.

It only takes a second to pick these items up and put them in the garbage.
