Plastic debris in the Jurassic coast, UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site

When I recently planned to visit back Durdle Door in the Jurassic Coast (one of my favourite places in the world, listed as UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site), I couldn’t have imagined that this time I’d only photography such a high amount of litter in such a marvelous coast. Although I personally believe that plastic pollution needs to be taken as a serious issue no matter where or how beautiful the spot must be, we both will agree that it is very overwhelming when you visit such a lovely place but it only reminds you one more time that marine pollution is ubiquitous. This is a very devastating example of how our throw-away society not only affects others (i.e. marine life) but it also come back to us by polluting recreation places like this.
