Turtles aren't the only ones that mistake plastic bags for food. This litter object catches the wind and livestock like cows and horses have been known to play with and mistakenly ingest the commonly littered item. Your work cleaning up Frisco streets helps prevent those bags from making their way into these creatures. You don't have to look far to see the impact you're having!

Our fight against litter may have bigger impacts than we have previously thought. Study suggests the way light is filtered through or blocked by plastics may impact ocean temperature. Because of how prolific plastics are, the exact ramifications are unclear. The Ocean Conservancy estimates there are 150 million metric tons currently in the ocean and that the number is increasing by 8 million metric tons annually.
