OK so…I have a bone to pick with Ohio and New York states (Pennsylvania I didn’t even go to shore so I have no idea about you): I have had to throw into the garbage more cans, bottles, and plastic recyclable containers in the past month since I’ve been in the United States, than I have in the past 20 years living in Vancouver (I know I’m setting myself up for a joke about how much beer we’re drinking, but bear with me…). I’m not sure if there is just a lack of access to facilities for boaters, or if this is a general population trend, but it is appalling and I am ashamed to be partaking in it. The facilities we’ve frequented for the past month have been, for the most part, spectacular – but this is my one complaint since being on this trip.
P.S. I know this is not an America-wide phenomenon (I’m looking at you San Fran/Cascadia)…GET IT TOGETHER EVERYBODY ELSE.
(ADDENDUM: NYC is up to speed with recycling trends, so they are exempt from this rant)
