It has become apparent, thanks to massive publicity in the media, that areas of the country, especially the coastal areas have become polluted and in some cases almost unfit for human use, debris from ships, debris from beach visitors not taking their rubbish home with them plus all of the flotsam and jetsam thrown up from goodness knows where by the sea.
