Bring Back the Bayou


bayou2.jpg  When he discovered his local mangrove full of trash that had floated downstream, noble Floridian and kayak guide Kurt Zuelsdorf took action.  Among his many clean-up projects is this simple and innovative trade: he offers free kayak rentals in exchange for bringing back a bag of trash.  So far this project has collected 11,000 pounds of waste, to say nothing of Zuelsdorf’s larger interventions with a local nonprofit.  Kudos, Kayakin’ Kurt.
