Yes! Thank you for these kind/true words! The issue is much more insidious and systematic than many people realize (as such with many of our societal woes). As such, I'm just glad to help to my part in promoting conversations along the lines that you point out.
It's been amazing to share beach cleaning stories whether here on Medium or via YouTube videos and other social media content. There's a real hunger for people to help make a difference--and while few of us may have "the answers" to these problems, every bit is a huge step on the path toward collective awareness and progress!
