Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.

BBC: Why are Nike trainers turning up on beaches?

The BBC have a news report about Nike trainers turning up on beaches from the stunning Orkney Islands to the Channel Islands, from Bermuda and the Bahamas to Ireland. 

It's thought that the trainers - along with a lot of other shoes and various products - toppled overboard in heavy seas. 

This means that even more items are turning up on beach shores, endangering wildlife who may think they are something to eat, or who get tangled up in them.

So wouldn't be great if companies who lose items at sea in such spillages do a team day where they help clean up the planet, whether it’s a beach or the countryside?  

And if there is a spillage in sea, they have to give a certain amount of their profits to marine conservation charities at the nearest point to which the spillage happened?
