We are seeing some wonderful efforts from businesses to make straws an option only for people in the community who need them. But we are still seeing many turn up on our beach. We collected 26 straws.

On top of the confectionary wrappers, which made up the majority of rubbish, we also collected 14 bottles (plastic and glass), a few coffee cups and lids, fishing wire, four socks, thongs and old beach toys.
