I thoroughly enjoyed my summer break in Maine! My lovely niece, Tay, planned her wedding for high season in Boothbay Harbor.

Suffice it to say that our planet is overwhelmed with plastic on land and sea. Did you know that animals and humans are ingesting micro-plastics? Microplastics are small plastic pieces less than five millimeters, often much smaller. They are in our food supply. Some estimate that we eat the equivalent of a credit card a week!
