This year's New Years resolution was to pick up (at least) one piece of litter every day. Minus three days when we couldn't get out because of snow (and we wouldn't have been able to find anything under the snow anyway), we've kept to things pretty well.
I can tell you based on unscientific research that the majority of our side-of-the-road trash in Falmouth (excluding cigarette butts) consists of nip and water/sports drink bottles, plastic silverware, plastic drinking straws, and cups (paper, plastic & styrofoam) from fast food restaurants.
Of course there is no point in anything that cannot be self promoted so if you want to read about our adventures in litterland it's at www.365daysoftrash.wordpress.com or click on the button to the right.
