All of this really ****es me off. Just left the beach and there's plastic bags in the water, on the beach, and all over the rocks, mixed with beer cans and other crap. While I get upset with the local homeless and fishermen on the beach, the problem is much bigger than the local threat. So I pull the trash that I can out of the ocean all the while realizing that it probably doesn't matter much. Maybe I help out a sea turtle or 2, who knows? Happy to recycle some batteries!

Is there a place to recycle/dispose of non-rechargeable batteries? You know, the regular ones.

If everyone thought that their little contribution made a difference, and everyone made that contribution, there would be no pollution.
If everyone thought their contribution wouldn't make a difference, and decided not to make that contribution, we'd be up to our ears in garbage.
The problem could be much, much worse than it is now, but it could also be a whole lot better. Every time you toss something into a trash can, rather than littering, you help. If you pick up someone else's trash, you help more. When somebody sees you pick up another person's trash, and gets inspired to do so themselves, you begin to change the world.
