A Picture is worth 25,000 Cigarette Butts!
On Thursday evening, we did another 20 minute clean up (shocker, I know! ;) ) which makes it our 83rd! The beach wasn't very busy, but the ocean was filled with lots of surfers! :)
My husband and I picked up the equivalent of 1 bag of litter that weighed nearly a pound that included:
294 cigarette butts
7 zip-ties (not sure what was up with zip-ties?? ... they were everywhere!)
1 aluminum can
1 plastic bottle
Another thing... we hit a milestone. We've officially picked up over 25,000 cigarette butts off of WB. 25,180 to be exact. Here's the link to the post: Our Daily Ocean: Day 83
Also, wanted to let everyone know that Bonnie Monteleone (http://theplasticocean.blogspot.com) is working on an art piece and she needs blue plastic bottle caps. I've been saving all the blue plastics that I find for her, so if anyone else would like to do the same... I'm sure she would appreciate the help!
Thanks to everyone who helps keep WB clean!! :)
