Friday’s editorial is a decent reminder as we get closer to our peak beach/outdoor season:
The phrases should go without saying: The beach is not your ashtray. Litter is everybody’s business. The river is not a garbage disposal. Trash goes in the trash can.
And yet we must say them. And say them again. And apparently say them again. As The Sun News reported on Tuesday, volunteers with the Ocean Conservancy picked up nearly 10 tons of garbage from South Carolina’s beaches back in September. (They picked up more than 200 tons in North Carolina.) Last month, more than 200 big-hearted folks collected more than 4 tons of trash from the waterways around Murrells Inlet.
