Lake Erie, USA - Judith Russo

My Watermark is Lake Erie, New York.

I live on the shore of Lake Erie. Lake Erie is important to me because it gives us life and it feeds our soul.

About ten years ago we started picking up plastic trash off the shore. I would bring 1 or 2 5-Gallon buckets, some days I would fill them both up with plastic trash that washes up on the shore.

So I try to contribute to help make this planet more green. I moved to the area about ten years ago so we assume the trash was there before, but it's become more of a problem recently.

I’ve always been a water child and been close to the water, especially in the summer when I can go swimming as often as I like, and in between swims I collect plastic.
