Day 308 - July 27, 2012

lifeguard tower 26 - Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA
trash collected for 20 min. 
6 pounds
1,160.2 pounds total

4 cigarette butts

I got nothing. Usually, some spark of inspiration comes from seeing the photograph up. 
I can only think it's so stupid to have a plastic container for 12 or so Pringles. 30 seconds of snacking encased in plastic that's never going to biodegrade.... 

Last weekend's Ocean Park 26 Surf Contest had reusable water coolers instead of bottled water. Congratulations to all the participants, and organizers!

Sometimes I wonder if plastic trash on the beach in Santa Monica is so common place that we walk right on by without seeing it. Does enough pepper the sand to make us visually immune? 

Next week is HANDS ACROSS THE SAND - support a cleaner energy future and say no to Off-shore Oil Drilling by literally joining hands across the sand of your local beach. Their site will let you know where the closest location is, or how to start your own hand-joining event. So cool!
