Default Just Two Pieces

My son and I police ourselves when we use the beach. That's just basic correctness. As a small payment for the pleasure of using the beach, we each take out two pieces of garbage that we didn't bring. It's not a major task or a huge difference, but it serves to help turn around the effects left by A##holes. The idea came to me from a Navy experience. When dismissed from ranks, no man could leave the parade grounds until he showed the officer two pieces of, yep...you guessed it, garbage. In minutes, you were hard pressed to find a cigarette butt.
My only hope is that those who have a reverence for our natural resources outnumber the A##holes. Just two pieces........

Well done sir. Down the canal today I removed a lot of fishing line left in the rocks. A little effort goes a long way

Jack, don't try to clean the whole beach yourself. You'll just get tired and disgusted when more shows up. Two pieces will be just fine,thank you.

As an interesting side note, my son picked up a cup and a plastic bag and dropped them in the can while being observed by six or so " fishermen". As he turned towards his car, one of them said " What the hell did you do that for? Let them pigs clean up after themselves." Sorta missed the point, I'd say.



Great to see interest in such a simple concept. Tight lines.

So how are we doin'? I feel a little better about "my spots", even though the little pigs show up every now and again. Weekends are tough. Now that you've read this, I know that you are making a difference, or will. Just two pieces.......
