Location: 96th Street, Stone Harbor, NJ
Haul: 29.5 lbs
Even though Stone Harbor’s beaches are raked daily, our volunteers managed to collect 31.5 pounds of trash from the 96th Street Beach. Volunteers collected plastic bottles, cigarette butts, plastic bags, ribbons, and food wrappers, all of which appeared to be a tasty snack for area birds. Our weird trash included a Sid action figure from Ice Age, a clump of fallen balloons, a sparkler, and a bike lock.
This cleanup was our Third Annual Beach Cleanup we’ve hosted with Global Pursuit, located at 262 96th Street in Stone Harbor. They sell the hottest trends in beachwear to locals and tourists. Between the personal atmosphere and the knowledge that you’re supporting a worthy cause, Global Pursuit offers more than one excuse for a shopping trip.
