We ARE Trashy!!!
Did you know that WE ARE TRASHY??????
With over a half million volunteers cleaning up the beaches last year, we found out there are some pretty terrible things floating around in our oceans … and we put them there.
Volunteers collected over 10 MILLION POUNDS OF TRASH and here’s how it broke down:
Over 2 million cigarettes
Over 1 million food wrappers/containers
1 million beverage bottles
1 million plastic backs
Almost 700,000 cups and cutlery
Almost 1 million glass bottles and cans
300,000 paper bags
Bottom line: If you’re going to eat, drink, and smoke on the beach(like along the Missouri River--hint hint!!!), DON’T BE A COMPLETE MORON AND LEAVE YOUR TRASH THERE! (Gawker)
