Litter Donations -- June 21, 2009 -- Sanibel Island, FL
The first photo shows one of two bags of litter collected this morning. This was picked up around 8:30 to 9:30 from Tarpon Bay Road Beach. Fortunately, Sanibel is pretty clean, although there are still lots of cigarette butts and a fair number of bottle caps. VERY impressed with Sanibel and Sanibel residents. While they can't prevent littering, the residents are very conscious about keeping the beach clean and removing litter. They do this on their own, no trucks or beach rakers are allowed on the beach. The beach is natural, with seaweed left in place.
On the right is the second bag of litter picked up from around 10-11am at the Lighthouse beach. Lots of cigarette butts, a plastic bag, juice packs, bottle caps and miscellaneous bits of plastic. Met two interesting women from the Cape (here in FL), Pam and "C", who are in marketing and promote green businesses and are interested in the Museum of Litter. Can't wait to do something with them.
