Community Count Day 189 - Arleen in Martha's Vineyard

It's getting cold on the East Coast. I can hear the cry, "GETTING!" from my friends back there. The point is, my friend Arleen still walks along the blustery beaches of Martha's Vineyard, and while she does she collects trash. She's done several Daily Ocean cleanups with me when in Venice, and a few on her own. A big thank you to Arleen for taking the time to share. Here are her latest findings, and some words of her own. 

Lucy Vincent Beach , Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard, MA
trash collected for 20 min.
3.74 lbs

"I  walk this beach which always appears pristine, but upon closer inspection the usual suspects are evident: styrofoam , plastic bottles, bottle tops and strings with balloon remnants.  

Even collected a large piece of black plastic- not sure what that is /was!
Made sure to take a couple of photos for you."

  1. Arlene and Sara, you both make it possible for us to walk the beaches in pristine conditions. On our walk today, I'll be sure to take a bag with me and do some picking up along our streets. God Bless!
