After over 200 sunset cleanups featuring many varieties of plastic bits and bobs, I'm lost for new words to describe them. What's left to say? The tone of this question I ask myself is one of genuine inquiry, not defeat. But that's my job, figuring out how to convey the feeling that finding these items again and again inspires within me. I guess the truth is, sometimes there aren't any new words to share with you.

I have a question. How is your company addressing its packaging littering the streets, oceans, and everywhere in between? What's that? You've never heard of 

Pink straws remind me of Baskin and Robbins. Anyone? Orange Frappes and grilled Hot Dogs = childhood memories with my Dad.

The beach was pretty clean last night though, which makes for one smiling cleanup.
