This is true! I've seen them well off shore.

For some comic relief, you have to look up Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street on youtube singing "I love Trash"........ Anything dirty or dusty or dingy.....

Indeed. The USA is one of the cleaner countries out there. Compared to most of the third world, it's not immaculate, but is close.

As a marine biologist I appreciate that. I really hate finding butts when I'm sorting through totes of fish.

Bit strange though that when I'm up to my elbows in scales, slime, jelly fish, and bits of seaweed that my reaction to feeling a cigarette butt should be "Ewww, gross!"

My pet peeve is the juice boxes and juice pouches. They are floating everywhere. Wht is wrong with a reusable cup anyway? And the beer bottles of course.

The sad part is that even the people who claim to be environmentally sensitive still drive their SUV home to their manicured lawns. Most people are hypocrites.
