How much litter are we removing from our waters? See for yourself!
We delivered over 40 super sacks of pure river plastic to the Mobile County Recycling Center to be baled and shipped to a specialty materials client in New Jersey. All of these bottles came straight out of rivers during our cleanups over the past few months. (For reference: one super sack holds an average of 60 pounds!)
If it weren’t for our partners, this plastic would still be in our waterways.
