Labor Day is just around the corner. On the weekend of September 7, most Americans will celebrate the end of summer with a barbecue or a trip to the beach. This is just a friendly reminder not to leave trash at your favorite beach.
I just looked at a website on International Coastal Clean-up day and saw the list of the top ten items collected during Clean-up day. Cigarette Butts head the list followed by food wrappers (candy, chips, etc.), plastic beverage bottles, plastic bottle cups, straws, stirrers, other plastic bags, grocery plastic bags, glass beverage bottles, beverage cans and plastic cups and plates.
As the website says “Let’s keep the sea healthy for sea turtles, polar bears, whales and people like you.”
