Help Keep Juneau’s Watersheds Free of Litter
Litter in our streams, riparian areas and wetlands isn’t just unsightly, it can harm the environment. Plastic, the most ubiquitous type of litter, is common in many of our local water bodies and has a good chance of making it to the ocean, contributing to the 8 million tons of plastic waste that flows from land to sea each year. There, sunlight and physical forces break plastic into tiny particles. This microplastic can harm aquatic life and often ends up in the seafood that we consume.
