These kids were out doing a beach clean-up and they decided to join our (small but mighty) procession to show our position against offshore oil drilling and maintaining the moratorium currently in place in Oregon.
Like one of our participants said ‘Hard to see a moment like that and not feel a little inspired and comforted about where we are headed as a community. Thanks also to everyone who showed up in support.’
Saturday May 9th, Nye Beach in Newport, 10 to 1, check in from 10 to 11:15 (this event will be canceled if it rains).
Have you wondered about those colorful little bits we see more and more of in the sand? If you look closely they are everywhere and perhaps you’ve been out on a day when the rack lines were thick with them. Unfortunately most are plastic – not pretty stones. Plastic never really goes away, instead it’s breaking down into these tiny fragments. You also find lots of mermaids’ tears, these are particularly sad as they have never been anything useful even for a day. Technically know as nurdles, they are pre-production microplastic resin pellets.
