This is a summary of my October 2019 plastic picking! Total bags of trash and other things found near the shoreline that are now donated, reused or gifted. I have also updated my Plastic Picking Totals https://drplasticpicker.com/plastic-picking-round-up for semi regular updates. This is my second month of plastic picking, and number of bags dropped off as did total number of items. As you can see drplasticpicker is honest. When my grocery bag is half filled, I only give myself half bag credit. It was a busy month with the 2 out of town trips and learning how to blog. But I’m dedicated to the main focus which is really just getting to the beach and cleaning up. Hopefully next month, you’ll see my totals go up!

19.5 Bags of Ocean Bound Plastic Collected

88 Items Salvaged

Object Total Number Fate
sand toys 27 gifted!
aluminum cans 24 recycled

Other miscellaneous items include a towel, reusable metal straw, Patagonia girls cap (really nice retails $35), sun glasses, 1 item office supply, plastic dinosaur, necklace, portable pet bowl, set of pliers, eyebrow pencil (don’t ask!), perscription glasses, and a large clean aluminum sheet pain.
