Day 351 - Nov. 3, 2012

lifeguard tower 26 - Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA
trash collected for 20 min.
1.3 pounds
1,295.4 pounds total

9 cigarette butts

The beach was blissfully clean except for a few wrappers. I like the trend of cleaner beaches. 
If this keeps up, "it's going to be a bright, bright, bright sun-shiny day."

My presentation from the panel on Plastic Pollution at Santa Monica College on Oct. 25th. 
Spare 11 min. to listen to a story about how one person grabbed a bag to do a beach cleanup on a cold March afternoon in 2009 and took over 1,200 pounds of trash from her local sandy coastline and then pass it along. The more voices for clean oceans the better - please share widely.
