Litter, Litter Everywhere...

NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher employees cleaned up Hwy 421 today. The aquarium has adopted part of the highway and cleans it regularly. Cigarette butts were the most common items found (did you know it takes decades for them to degrade?), in addition to beer cans and plastic bottles. But, we also found a huge pile of plastic wrap with a tiny crab trapped inside - another good reason not to litter! How can you help? Organize a clean up, starting with your own neighborhood. Remember to wear bright colored clothing, bug spray, sunscreen, and gloves. Most importantly, dispose of trash and recycling properly, not on the streets!
