Vervuiling Noordzee en stranden

Een filmpje gemaakt door NorthSeaKayak, een kleine groep Belgische zeekayakkers, over afval op de Noordzee en de stranden.

As a sea kayaker I’m often confronted with pollution. On my many trips I encounter a variety of marine litter. The things I recover the most are balloons, Styrofoam, fishing nets, toys (especially during the summer months), plastic bags, cans and bigger things.

I’m hoping to convince others to take the initiative of collecting garbage, and to put it where it belongs; in the trash bin! I know I’m not alone, I’m certainly not the only one doing this on a regular base, but there’s much work to be done. We also have to change our mind set and way of life. We have to stop using that amount of plastic in our daily lives.

I made this video with the footage of years filming and photographing, in order to shove it under the noses of those who are thinking that there is nothing wrong! We have to take care of our playground, it’s full of life and beauty. The only thing that is missing sometimes is the will to act! So don’t think, but DO!
