Plastic is broken down to ever smaller bits, but it does not go away.

That's a real bunch of shit!

F. van Daalen: I know, and it is present all over the world. Plastic is the main contributor.

Good shot! I hate that green rope! We have it here too, from the fishing nets I think. Perhaps there is some excuse for that, the nets do sometimes break. But bottle caps and other garbage? Shame on them!

Snemann on November 1, 2010

I believe it is from the knots in the fishing nets, yes. And it is found everywhere. along with bottle caps and the rest. It really is a shame.

Not the prettiest photo in your gallery Sneman, but it has to be shown! The wood will gradually disappear, the stones will inevitably become sand, but the plastics, by products from Norway's wealth, will remain to be washed up elsewhere along Norway's beautiful coastline.

This is a terrible indictment on the careless activities of humankind!

True, Amelia. You have probably seen marine litter along the coastline in your part of Norway too. Take a photo, and post it with the tag "marine litter" and we might have the start of a collection of litter pics on Panoramio. _But be sure to include a nice background, to pass GE criteria.

Thanks for visiting - If you have a picture of a littered coastline, please post it, and tag it "marine litter". It would be interesting to see what thrash in the ocean does to coastlines all over the world. Be sure to include the surroundings, to pass GE criteria.

Ja, jeg husker det "thread", hvor diskusionen gik på om skrald billeder hørte hjemme på GE, men du fik dine med !!

What ignorance ! Behind these monters real punk acts that generate our lack of future.

Thanks for commenting. There are in fact several international initiatives aiming to reduce marine litter. Look up KIMO, and Waste free oceans.
