Beaches are one of the most polluted places. Beach waste constitutes both organic and inorganic material. Things like plastic bottles, food packets, discarded fishing equipment, animal and plant matter are some of the things that litter beaches. Tourists, shipping vessels, fishing equipment, are all responsible for littering and polluting beaches.
The collective waste from public beaches can weigh millions of tons and cause irreparable damage to aquatic life and the environment. Therefore cleaning up the beaches is a measure which is necessary to combat pollution and save marine life.
