Did you correctly guess what the Ocean Conservancy lists as the most common item collected in beach cleanups? It isn't straws but cigarette butts. Read more on it here:


Now - what could be MORE disgusting?  And - they didn't come from folks ON the beach, but from upstream/up river into the storm drains and eventually to the ocean.  2.4 MILLION were collected internationally in 2017. 

I must admit to having contributed to this problem when I was a smoker...............disgusted now by my actions.

GLAD I don't do that anymore.
