lifeguard tower 26 - Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA
trash collected for 20 min.
979.2 pounds total
For my last 100 20 min. cleanups, I'm counting the number of cigarette butts I find to help my friend Danielle who writes, It Starts With Me collect comparative data from a beach that bans smoking, Santa Monica, and the local beaches that allow smoking in her Wrightsville Beach, N.C. community.
cleanup #3 - 17 cigarette butts
total number - 40
Danielle collected over 400 in one 20 min. cleanup the other day. The numbers speak for themselves.
