Savior of the beach

What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘beach’? Most probably you would think of clean white sand, clear blue water and a spotless sky. But the moment you see even a single piece of litter, the whole image just goes to trash.

When we frolick around the beach, playing in the sand and splashing around in the water, we barely ever notice a job well done by the savior of the beach – the bin.

Every year, millions of people flock to the beaches in summertime. And the race to being the coolest person begins. And that entails parties, picnics and celebrations. And like all parties litter is expected. But just when you’ve finished that drink and can no longer keep an empty cup in your hand, a bin arrives to your rescue. It opens its jaws and happily accepts whatever you throw into it. The bin makes a personal sacrifice for the greater good. That is what makes the bin the savior of the beach.

Reading this article has done two things for you –

  1. If you are abnormal, you might have developed a fetish for trash cans
  2. Congratulations! You are normal. Because after reading this article, you have gained an immense respect for litter bins and the next time you see one,  you will bow down to it and chant the songs of mother earth.

Yes, Yes … I know what you’re thinking. Here comes another environmentalist. I’m not at all an environmentalist. But yes, when I’m on  a beach, I like to walk on sand and not worry about getting party leftovers stuck to my feet.
