Pollution Of Beaches This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Ever taken a long stroll on a beach, listened to the splashing of the deep blue sea, seen the wonderful flora and fauna which lie on the beach, and suddenly, you trip and fall over some rubbish? Pollution takes away all the beauty of our beaches. I hate to go to the beaches on weekends and see trash bags lying on the sand, cigarette butts buried in the sand, and soda cans floating in the ocean.

One thing that really irritates me is when I see tourists who visit Hawaii leave their rubbish on the beaches. I was always taught that wherever I go, I should always respect property. After drinking your soda, throw your can where it belongs - in the trash can. Another thing that irritates me is when I see people walking right by rubbish and pretending that it's not there. If you see rubbish, you should do your part in protecting the land by picking it up and throwing it away.

The main problem is obviously man. It's all our fault. We can't blame it on the dogs or the fish, we must blame ourselves. We leave our trash behind. We pretend the rubbish isn't there. Everyone has to do their part to solve this problem. It can't be just a few trying to do the job.

There are a lot of things that we can do. For one, we can help pick up trash along the beaches. We could also form some kind of organization that helps clean up the beaches of Hawaii. But if we don't want to do that, we can just simply pick up our own trash and throw away all the trash that we see lying around.

If everyone does their part, the beaches of Hawaii would be a wonderful and beautiful place. We need to start now before the beaches are damaged beyond repair. ^
