People Who Litter are Lazy and Suck

NOAA did a little exercise... they helped sponsor a cleanup by the Ocean Conservancy.  It took more than 500,000 volunteers and they ended up collecting 10,000,000 lbs (4,540,000 kg) of coastal crap.

Then they dug through it and found that in the crap, there were

2.1 million cigarettes

1.1 million food wrappers/containers

1.1M plastic bottles

1M plastic bags

.95M caps and lids

They even found 40 lottery tickets (losers I presume) and 117 mattresses.

Damn people, there are plenty of trash cans around.  How hard is it to step a few feet to toss something out or place in the recycling can?
