Coastal Cleanup Data Indicates Cigarette Butts and Plastic Pieces are the Most Common Items
- "This year, more than 7,000 volunteers removed nearly 10,500 pounds of debris from coastal areas, capturing it before it could pollute the ocean. More alarming than the unusual items, says cleanup organizers, is that volunteers removed nearly 207,800 pieces of trash including more than 75,000 cigarette butts, 23,500 plastic pieces and 17,500 bits of plastic foam (the top three items removed)." - excerpt from press release by Surfrider Foundation's San Diego County Chapter.
