Beach Garbage 1

On my trip to the beaches of the Mayan Riviera in January 2008, I was astounded to see the amount of garbage that litters the beaches that are outside of the hotel zones. This garbage washes ashore after being dumped by ships at sea. Plastic items are the most common, because they float and don't break down in the environment. Did the shampoo bottle you threw away on your Caribbean cruise end up on this Mexico beach??
