Here’s my 1,000th plastic bottle cleaned from waterways and shorelines in 2021. In 2010, I made a commitment to clean at least 1,000 plastic bottles per year. I’ve accomplished that goal every year since, so that’s at least 11,000 plastic bottles (so far) that are out of/or never made it into our waterways. We may not solve the litter problem, but each and every one of us can contribute to a solution. Join me in my quest and be part of the solution. Make the paddling community known for all the good it does.
