I collected coastal plastic at Sea Rim State Park, in East Texas on May 3 2018.
Some of the most common items included plastic straws, tampon applicators, fishing gear, cigarette butts, and smoking tips. These items are potentially easy to replace. Plastic applicators are not the only option for women, and plastic straws can be omitted from daily life with preparation.
Come by and check out the display on the fourth floor in the RPTS departmental offices!
