This picture was taken on the beaches of Block Island, Rhode Island. This small island is located approximately 13 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. In the summer this is a popular tourist destination attracting visitors from all over the the world! After the long, and busy summer, the island is left with pollutants from beach goers, and marine operations off the coast. This picture is a constant reminder of the importance of keeping our beaches clean for the continued enjoyment of our future generations.
