Rubbish

Most weeks I spend at least half an hour collecting up plastic bottles, shredded food cartons, frayed rope, deflated balloons and other less distinguishable bits of plastic from a beach on Morecambe Bay, Lancashire. Generally it is the kind of stuff we’re meant to throw away (if not directly into the sea): stuff we don’t give a minute’s thought to.
