Read This: How to Start Incorporating Ethical, Environmental, and Economic Sustainability. Kelsey Timmerman's Where Am I Wearing?

I drove down to Myrtle Beach last spring break. Upon arriving, I couldn’t help but notice the mounds of litter huddling around the stop sign at an intersection. While walking around, I was able to observe the murky waters of this popular spring break spot. I wondered how the ecosystem in the local ocean was able to survive the hazards caused by beachgoers, and how it affected the local water quality.
