Congrats To The #LitterCrew In California!

They picked up over 1 MILLION pounds of ‪#‎Litter‬! That’s fantastic! We would love to see that kind of effort in Savannah as well!

They also realized that cigarette butts are the most common litter found on beaches. If you head out to any beach in the area be sure to dispose of your litter properly!
