plastic straws one of top 10 items found on beaches.

According to the Ocean Conservancy, plastic straws make up approximately 4% of beach litter and over the last 25 years, over 6.2 million plastic straws have been picked up during International Beach Cleanup Day, a day designated to cleaning beaches all over the world. Ocean Conservancy collects information on the type and quantity of debris on our beaches!

FYI. International Beach Cleanup Day is this SATURDAY. If you live in SF, come out to Ocean Beach for the cleanup at 9AM at Judah. Or find a cleanup in your town at: http://www.signuptocleanup.org/
