    My motivation for this challenge is this picture. I visited this beach in 2012 while on San Salvador Island in the Bahamas. It is known as junk beach. None of the trash on the beach is from the locals. All of it is washed to shore from the sea. It is a reminder that we need to do all we can to protect this planet and allow EVERYONE to have a clean environment to enjoy.
