Cedar Key, FL trying hard to keep its lovely streets & parks clean if cigarette butts. With some success!
What makes me think the Nova Scotian crate I found at the beach last night floated in from the ocean? Oh, just a hunch.

One quiet corner of Maine yells out, "You cannot flush plastic away. There -is- no away."
