“Bag It” leaves beaches way nature intended

Beaches are a way of life on Kaua’i, thanks to what nature provided and the

island’s more thoughtful inhabitants help preserve.

Examples of the latter

showed up on the shorelines last Saturday for the 11th annual Get the Drift and

Bag It cleanup. They picked up litter that, if left alone, would pose a threat

to wildlife and the general marine environment.

Under the auspices of the

Washington, D.C.-based Center for Marine Conservation, sponsor of the beach

brigades internationally, the volunteers also contributed to a significant

research program. The trash they collected was catalogued for studies that

could lead to legislation protecting beaches from people who care less about

the sandy vistas than the “Bag It” crews.
