Combat Flip Flops City of Kwinana Drainage Nets to collect pollution

We've been accused of being hippies a time or two.  You know, those guys wearing flip flops, telling people to be nice to one another, encouraging people to do business instead of shooting one another, and posting up weird music.  From the outside, we could understand this perspective.

We're also tree-huggers.  We all grew up outside--hunting, fishing, and adventuring.  Now we like to do that with our kids.  And if you're like us, you likely flip a biscuit when you see pollution on the beach, in a river, or generally placed anywhere outside a respective garbage can or recycling bin.  But every now and then, you see a common sense solution provided to clean up after the lazy, unthoughtful, short-sided pollution producers...

A fellow Veteran posted this Link to his Facebook page and it caught our eye.  An extremely large garbage trap to catch waste thrown into our waterways.  Pretty clever.

This isn't a preachy article (unless you're one of the polluters mentioned above).  Just a share of something heroic done by good people working toward a better future for all of us.

This is such a great idea. No complicated equipment. Little effort that makes a simple, measurable, and visible difference. This is a great way to do the little things even if it is incomplete.
