  • Unfortunately about surprises waiting for him at the airport, the board police won't let him through because of a glass full of sand he took as a souvenir.

  • They confiscated the glass and he has to pay a $1000 fine.

  • Why would this happen?

  • Sand is a non renewable resource, valuable not only to our planet but also to the tourism and construction industry.

  • Taking sand away as well.

  • A seashells and rocks can have a major impact on the environment and may lead to the disappearance of our beloved beaches.
