|Just a portion of the debris removed|
I was told that the top 5 debris items found on the beach are: cigarette butts, straws, plastic bottle caps, food wrappers and lighters. I am saddened to say I found all of those yesterday!!
|a drop in the bucket, 5 minutes worth of cleanup|
As I was walking the beach with my bucket full of debris a tourist stopped me and proceeded to tell me that this beach condition was awful and something needed to be done. Hmmm....guess he didn't see me bending over and collecting debris. We all have to do our part, had he just picked up one piece of debris, the beach would have been one piece cleaner.
You don't have to live near the beach to do a cleanup...look around I bet you can find something.
|ugh---the micro plastic|
|1 of the 3 large nets/ropes that was removed|
|volunteers working to cut up net into manageable pieces|
|nets and rope|
|good job--1/3 of net/rope off the reef|
