Our first post! Still part of Sea NC but isolated to showcase our growing interest in trash collection and marine debris/plastic prevention.

So many great organizations doing this work on the Crystal Coast already. Big thanks! This is a small contribution but a different one.

Now that we have cleaned the bulk of the built-up trash along the maritime and in the lowland next to the train tracks, our mission is to maintain a largely trash-free look by conducting routine maintenance.

The idea is to show people what a highway/estuary system SHOULD look like.

The trash buildup is so extensive on our coast. Drivers must think that either public service isn’t doing its job (not the case) or that it’s hopeless (also not the case).

The Radio Island stretch of Highway 70 is a busy area. Only one way to get from Morehead City to Beaufort and vice-versa. People will see Radio ‘Free’ Island and wonder what happened, at minimum.

With more thought, drivers will think twice about throwing a cigarette butt out the window. They might think about the loose trash in the back of their trucks (in our opinion = the WORST culprit of trash proliferation, based on what we pick up). Residents are already active in pickup.

As we build momentum, we seek to promote Radio Island as the cleanest island in NC. This, we hope, will inspire other islands and coastal communities to make similar efforts.

Who knows, maybe the State or County could figure out a way to have a completion or certification whereby the winners/places could earn an acknowledgement?!?

Let’s go Radio ‘Free’ Island! Please FOLLOW / Like us!

This photo is from our first ‘maintenence’ haul - walked down the South side and up the North side in a couple hours. The rest of the photos coming...

Fishy Friday: take a good look at this mid March photo of Cpt Abel (Timor-Leste) 10 years ago, which ended up in other publications since.

While we awake from hibernation in NC, other places around the world are red hot. On March spring tides, wahoo were everywhere in Timor. Abel and I could have swum to the beach in this photo! What a place...

Trashy Tuesday (part 2): Radio Free Island lives!
Several weeks of truckbed-lined trash bags are now in the books (or dumpsters really). 99% of the island’s thoroughfare is clean. One resident joined me for the final haul last night. Thanks to anyone else who helped out!

One thing we did NOT clean are cigarette butts. They aren’t plastic and as Mick Jagger used to sing, time waits for no one. We want to take some before/after pictures before we do a Round 2. It’s amazing how many are piled up.

We also did not clean the beach/bay area on south side or the boat ramp section on north side.

Now let’s keep Radio Island ‘Free’! Let’s keep it the cleanest island in North Carolina! We’ll do our part!

Trashy Tuesday: Radio ‘Free’ Island is getting close! Hit the SW corner of the ‘big rock’ last weekend, which was loaded. Got up to Radio Island Marina. North side of 70 has some coming back, but so much easier to collect when on the grass vs in the maritime vegetation. AB bridge + causeway = still going strong...

Trashy Tuesday: ‘Radio Free’ Island! Well, almost. Despite the weather, we picked up ALMOST all of the trash up on the North side of Highway 70, from bridge to bridge.

‘Put that, put that, put that on your wall!’ - the name of this project is a tribute to the REM song ‘Radio Free Europe’ released 40 years ago, recorded in NC! ‘Radio Free Europe’ has even more history, which we won’t get into.

Cleaned the West section of the North side over a week ago, so it’s already building back up ever so slightly. But for the most part - this is what it SHOULD look like! = AWESOME!

Stay tuned to our next Trashy Tuesday where will share our ‘good, bad and ugly’ 6 month check-in!

And we still need to do the South side...

Not our typical Market Saturday post BUT try to minimize your plastic use today at the store: 18 BILLION pounds of it enter the ocean each year, according to Ocean Rebuild.

We may get rained out of our Radio Free Island cleanup... hopefully not. There’s a good pound or two (or more) just beside the highway.

#moreheadcity #atlanticbeach #emeraldisle #beaufort #crystalcoast #carteret #sea #coastalliving #ocean #NCSU #ECU #Duke #UNC #uncw #youthempowerment #marineconservation #plasticfree

Can you believe “more than 18 billion pounds of plastic enters the ocean every year.”?😱
.
Every year…
.
The largest ecosystem on our planet is under serious threat. From us and the things we do.
.
And while the sea may look vast & untouchable, it is quietly suffocating in our waste.
.
This is not on purpose. We’re not trying to destroy our planet. But if we don’t change our ways there may be no going back.
.
So, what can we do?
.
* Join the Break Free From Plastic movement

* Refuse single-use plastic items and switch to reusables
 
* Pick up trash when you see it, encourage others to do the same, and support brands with environmental initiatives
.
We all share this planet. Are you ready to help?
.
Let's support and encourage each other to do the best we can for our big, blue planet!

Fishy Friday: Plastic in the fish we eat = Plastic in our bodies! Left photo below from Day 2 of NC Marine Debris Symposium showing how much microplastic is in places like our sister SC state. Right photo is our trash pickup in honor of Symposium.

Translation?

There’s a lot of plastic out there. So great to have a Symposium like this, for years now, that shows the ‘evidence’ about a threat to our oceans (which is a threat to us).

Gotta keep ‘picking away’ at it, along with a lot of other dedicated people, while we push for more solutions in business, government, and communities!

Thirsty Thursday: highlights from NC Marine Debris Symposium (with a couple plastic filled trash collection bags of ours in tribute).

Key take-always:
Solidarity and Collaboration build a stronger pathway to Sustainable Circular Change;
Starting Local and Thinking Global is a great way to consider personal goals that address Marine Debris; and
Plastic Pollution is Persistent - it is Everywhere from human placenta to rain
and Radical Refusing is a necessary part of making change.

Great first day thanks to an amazing group of volunteers, panelists, our facilitator, attendees, sponsors, and our keynote speaker.
Breaks included deep discussions about producer responsibility and some impromptu music from one of our youngest NC change-makers.
We learned about circularity in systems, how we get back to our roots to find sustainable solutions, and efforts that are making a difference in reducing marine debris while creating jobs in low-income areas of the world.
We learned several ways that new technology and evolving business models are working to reduce the demand for materials and process materials from trash to a valued material.
We also learned how island nations are having to improve their infrastructure to keep up with the massive amount of marine debris that is washing up on their shores and how audits reduce waste and save money for island resorts.
We learned how grassroots education programs are inspiring young leaders and local businesses to take action and get involved in being a part of the solution to marine debris prevention

Trashy Tuesday: spent Super Bowl Sunday double fi***ng! We don’t drink however.

Project ‘Radio Free Island’: a beautiful, well-soiled stretch of estuary between Morehead City and Beaufort we intend to clean, as others do from time to time. Truck was full. 2 days down; another 4 or so to go. Expanding our Causeway coverage too. Our coast is too pretty to not keep clean.

Pescador Sportfishing in Timor Leste

Sunday special: our first ocean documentary (2012) to support tourism in our beloved Timor-Leste (‘East Timor’).

Every weekend, we took our ‘tinny’ (Australian nickname for a small aluminum boat) in search of wahoo, tuna and mackerel. We befriended some youth in our neighborhood and together we explored the entire north coast of the country.

We found giant ledges, seamounts and river mouths. Sometimes we got lucky. And when we did, we would funnel our extra fish to the youths who would fillet and sell the fish (on ice) to a hungry expat market.

Later, our friend Hugo Lebre started the first Timorese expat fish restaurant in Dili called the Pescador (see photo at end of video; Pescador is Portuguese for Fisherman). He has become one of Timor’s most successful businessmen, winning awards and traveling through the region (far beyond the restaurant, many Timorese employed). A hero of the country’s independence movement along with his family, and so many others.

On this rainy and cold winter morning, always fun to think of a place as wonderful as Timor-Leste. Beyond its fascinating people and culture, there were those magic days when the tides, winds and water clarity were just right, and you knew that it was not a question of ‘if’ but ‘how many’. Don’t worry. We’ll get those days in North Carolina too. Everyplace has those days. As long we keep them that way. Viva Timor-Leste!
