Trash on the reef side of the islands comes in with the tides..plastic bottles, slippers, and a strange mix of stuff, not so much dumped. Its an endless process of cleaning. I have seen too many times local folks, and I am sure some tourist dump their lunch plates, drinks..etc into the water after eating. Trash on the mainland side is alot of times folks trying to put trash somewhere because they dont want to or cant pay dump fees.

I think most of this refuse is dumped off the cruise ships?
Drifts in with the prevailing winds?
They are infamous for littering oceans.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the trash was collected and turned into art then sold back to the suckers who come off the cruise ships? :-) My mind is a terrible place to live.

The flotsam dates at least from the 60s before the cruise ships.We used to say it came off freighters...
I have been on a saliboas where the captain tossed trash over and the passengers revolted
Maybe all the above

Pam Robinson..she has quite a talent for beach combing and creating art sculptures. She left about 12 pieces at my gallery and they sold quickly,,yes I think a market could be developed by creating more art from this debris..

I would be into buying some if I knew the waste not used in the sculpture was collected and disposed of properly.
