week 18--John Littlejohn finds lots of trash washed up in zone 1
While walking Zone 1 this morning, I was surprised by the quantity of trash and wound up with four bags (H/T plastic type). In another surprise and perhaps because of the storm, most of what I found was floating in the water or was just at the shoreline. Items found included:
a Wrightsville Beach blue trash drum which I dragged from the water and left well above the high tide mark, many aluminum cans and plastic water bottles, plastic drink pouches, many plastic bags like the very one I was using to corral the trash, a sand bucket, and (drum roll, please) panty hose floating on the incoming tide.
