Beach Trash

Waste that washes up on the beach

Photo Story

Every day I walk my dog on a beach on Lake Erie and every day I pick up waste that has washed up, blown-in or thrown away.

I created this collection to document the problem of beach trash and to encourage people to think about what they throw away and how it can affect the health of our water systems.
