So, to digest this polluted way of thinking, a fellow land mermaid and I decided we’d spend a week picking up trash on the beach and talk about our daily pollution finds- the birth of the trashy beach blog is born! I wish it was reminisces of treasure hunting, yet this is plain ol’ trashy sh*t – the stuff that is reflecting an attitude that I’d like to see cleaned up..consciously and physically transformed.
