87 Upstream Communities

It takes hundreds of caring folks combing the sands each month to rid Long Beach's coastline, however temporarily, of the street run-off, debris and trash from 87 upstream communities. - Justin Rudd, beach cleanup voolunteer

Fact About Cigarette Butts
When it rains, the water carries cigarette butts and trash via storm drain systems and waterways right out to the ocean, where currents wash it up onto the beach.

Dangers of Cigarette Butts
In addition to polluting streets and beaches, plastic pieces, such as cigarette butts (cigarette butts are made of cellulose acetate, a form of plastic) can pose a health hazard to animals. Marine animals can mistake butts as food. If plastic blocks their digestive track, animals may become ill or even starve. Animals can also become entangled in trash, which restricts their ability to eat, breath and swim, often with fatal results.
