Tsunami debris still washing ashore four years later

Tomorrow marks the fourth anniversary of the tsunami disaster in Japan, and debris is still washing across the Pacific Ocean and onto BC beaches.

Kate Le Souef  of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup organization says items such as wood and fishing gear are common but household items make up a lot of the waste.

She says she’s struck by the number of shampoo bottles and plastic drink bottles that are washing ashore.

Le Souef says one legacy of the disaster that killed nearly 16,000 people may be an awareness of all the garbage that ends up in the ocean.
