Woo hoo!! Day 3 of my pledge to collect trashy marine treasure was a great success. Back out on the House Reef and today's haul was: 16 plastic drinks bottles, 1 plastic shampoo bottle, 16 plastic food pots (yoghurt pots), 1 flip flop (I still don't understand the amount of flip flops out there!), 1 piece of nylon rope and a badminton shuttlecock?????? Job done for the day. Back out with my collection bag tomorrow - one person can make a difference - in just 3 days that's a lot of plastic.......

I am loving the Project AWARE Trash is Treasure campaign and I'm pledging that from tomorrow I will endeavor to recover trash on every dive for the rest of the month AND on days when I am not diving I will go and clean up the beach! I can't arrange clean ups this month as we are so busy on the island but I am taking the Project AWARE slogan of One Dive At A Time to heart - if any one is reading this - why not do the same!!!?? Let's clean our seas and favorite dive spots!!!
