Quotes

"The most profound lesson I've learned from the Lego story is that things that go to the bottom of the sea don't always stay there. Tracking currents is like tracking ghosts - you can't see them. You can only see where flotsam started and where it ended up.” - US oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer"
However, Lego isn't the only type of spillage that Tracey Williams and other beach combers find. "As well as the Lego, we pick up thousands of glow sticks, bottle tops, shotgun cartridges and shotgun wads, as well as IV drip bags, lighters and toothbrushes. The last three are all from cargo spills" said Williams
"We share an overall concern for the environment and we are very focused in our environmental efforts at our production sites to eliminate the waste that potentially could become a marine litter problem."
