Maybe we'll hit 50,000? Think about it. It may have taken us 69 clean ups to pass the 20,000 mark, but-- since I started this project at the beginning of August-- the majority of those clean ups were done off-season. In fact, 47 of the 69 clean ups were done between October and April. Hmmm... during the filming of my FilterForGood Film, I had 11,332 cigarette butts. Since December, we have added over 9,000 cigarette butts to the tally. Seriously, I count them all and I can't get over it. My brain is practically spinning.... and I can't help but wonder what the 2 busiest beach months will bring??
*sigh* A lot more of everything, that I am sure of.
