As my project continues, I wanted to share with you the top 5 things that were found during last years Coastal Clean Up Day on Sept. 15th, Thank you @your_nec for sharing the data with me! .
There were 1974 cigarette butts, 795 plastic pieces, 749 food wrappers, 740 glass pieces, and 399 Fishing lines. These findings somewhat align with 5 Gyres B.A.N. List 2.0, which states the top 5 things found nationwide are food wrappers, bottle caps, beverage bottles, plastic bags, and straws/stirrers. (If you haven’t, I highly suggest you check out the B.A.N. List 2.0 for more interesting information. .
Everyday is an opportunity to get involved and help keep our ocean and beaches clean. You can join me, @norcalbeachclean , @your_nec , and @humboldtbasecamp on March 30th at 1pm in the North Clam Beach Parking Lot for a Beach Clean Up & More. I Hope to see you out there! :) - 14 hours ago
