Trash Talk cover

No we are not talking about the rivalry between Eugenie Bouchard

and Maria Sharapova!  I ran into Orca author Michelle Mulder today and we

chatted a bit about her new book in the Orca Footprints series Trash Talk. 

Coming in April the book looks at the history of garbage from the ancient

Minoan trash pits to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and investigates ways

people are dealing with trash all over the world.   Thankfully things in Victoria

are improving.   From 1908 to 1958, city workers loaded all of Victoria’s

garbage onto barges and dumped it in the ocean.  The tide washed it back to shore

and beach users had to carry rakes with them to clear places to sit on the sand.
