Beach cleaning carol

The holiday season has been temperamental so far – bringing plenty of clouds and rain, strong winds but sunny days too. Each time the sea turns turbulent my heart falls due to the endless amounts of plastic rubbish ejected on to the shore. It never stops. It only seems to be getting worse.

An article published in the Guardian on December 23rd paints a very disturbing picture of a water pollution situation in Shanghai . A scene which soon could become familiar to all of us, if we don’t change our appalling consumption habits.

But this supposed be the season merriment.
So, here is a special Happy Beach Christmas song!
