The majority of litter at beaches isn't caused by litterbugs -- it's from lightweight, single-use products packaged in wrappers and empty plastic bottles that fall out of trash cans or are blown away by gusts of wind. If you have trash from your day at the beach, don't use the trash receptacles there; take your trash with you. Bring it back home or to a hotel where refuse can be properly disposed of. There are even smartphone apps to help you locate the closest recycling bin, too.
