Thanks for the Home Depot plastic bucket litter donation!
Where does this litter come from? One of three places. It was left by a local or a tourist visiting Lauderdale by the Sea, FL or it washed up to shore as discarded debris from someones boat.
Where it came from, there is a window of opportunity when it reaches the shore to prevent it from entering or reintering the ocean and becoming part of the swirling Atlantic Garbage Patch.
In addition to a Smartwater bottle, assorted plastic water bottles, a Gatorade bottle, single-use plastic bags and other assorted fast-food wrapper litter, we found a Home Depot plastic bucket. I guess someone had a DIY project and just left their bucket at the beach when they were done. Home Depot thanks you for the advertising and Ithe Museum of Litter thanks you for the bucket.
Using this bucket plus our grabber enables us to be green in our litter removal (no plastic bags)! Thanks for your donation, anonymous litterer, ..... we appreciate it and will put it to good use!
