I have been picking up beach trash on and off for the last 5 years on a 1 mile stretch of beach in San Diego, California. While much has been written about plastics and microfibers and fast fashion, not much has been written about textiles in the ocean and the effect on animals.
In 2018, I started a more focussed tracking beach trash that included unique items. http://www.greenecoservices.com/5000-items-of-clothing-textiles-picked-o...
Does anyone have anymore perspective on this subject? Or have animal references such as this?
There was an article here in 2010 about sweatpants in a whales stomach. https://www.theolympian.com/news/local/article25252162.html
