Our Daily Ocean: Day 120

On Thursday, my kids and I met our friend Ginger at Wrightsville Beach access 36.  Access 36 is our family's adopted beach access and now the place where we picked up the 40,000th cigarette butt off of Wrightsville Beach.
Doing only 20 minute beach clean ups... it's only taken 120 days to go over 40,000.  I'm committed to seeing this through... what will happen when it's 240 days?? ... no doubt that number will double.  UNLESS... (in the words of the Lorax)... someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

We need to show that the public -- locals and tourists--  is in favor of a ban on smoking on Wrightsville Beach.  Click here to send a letter today!
