HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Peaceful Protest Against Litter -- 6 months old
I started a Dutch blog and a Dutch facebook page. Dutch is my mothertongue. I found it very interesting to get in contact with other like-minded people and projects. I realized that most of what you find on litter and marine debris, plastic soup or plastic pollution is in English (youtube, facebook, articles on the internet etc.). So I started my English peaceful protest against litter blog and English peaceful protest against litter facebook page. This turned out to be "the pot of gold".
Even in the first couple of minutes of that first clean up I did with my boyfriend I realized: I could get really very frustrated doing this really fast. And I choose not to. That is a very conscious decision for 3 reasons. First to be able to do this kind of work for a long time and to have fun doing it (very important!). Secondly as a form of self-protection. And last but not least because I strongly believe that no positive change has EVER come from a pessimistic, over-critical, sour, bitter outlook on life.
