We have loved Streaky Bay and had an amazing afternoon playing and paddling at The Granites. However as I dipped my feet in the cool, clear waters I spotted and plucked out the above pictured plastic bag from the water.
A habit I have formed over the years, is collecting 3 pieces of rubbish and taking it with me when out in nature or anywhere really. Feeling pleased I had saved some unfortunate marine animal from suffocating on that bag, I thought I would see if I could collect my usual 3 pieces of rubbish from this pristine beautiful place.
As my eyes became attuned it was easy to spot against the pale sands the wee pieces of green and blue plastic, even those micro one’s.
Reduce, Reduce, Reduce. So many towns don’t have plastic bags in their supermarkets and stores. Us city slickers need to catch up and quick!

So good to hear you have had some time to unwind and enjoy – place looks amazing. Another one for the bucket list, along with the flinders ranges that we’ve always wanted to visit.
Good an ya Leonie that’s great back here in UK we have started to ban quite a few plastic makes to help the environment for our kids future Scotland started it first.
