Beach Cleanup 8-1-15
Half-mile walk on a cloudy, rainy day. Collected the usual single-use plastic crap that had washed ashore on the last tide. Much of it bit up by sea creatures.
Single-use plastic water bottles, single-use plastic cups, single-use styrofoam cups, single-use plastic food containers, plastic straws, plastic utensils, plastic caps, plastic toothbrushes, plastic toothbrush containers, plastic medicine containers, plastic shotgun shells, plastic oil containers, plastic water bottle fill with motor oil, shoes, rope, fishing gear. Foreign garbage from Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, Venezuela. 7 balloons - 6 latex & 1 mylar.
There are many alternatives to balloon releases. Instead of littering the planet by letting balloons go, you can instead have fun, celebrate, and remember with environmentally-friendly alternatives.
