The final “My Sea Campaign Lietuvoje. Baltijos švara – mūsų rankose!” event took place in Šventoji! With the help of volunteers, 756 pieces of litter were found on a 100-meter beach stretch. The beach in Šventoji is several times wider than the previous locations of the campaign: Karklė, Palanga, and Melnragė I. This determined the fact that 0.09 pieces of litter were found here per square meter. In Klaipėda, 0.14 pcs. per square meter were found, in Karkle – 0.18 pcs., in Palanga – 0.18 pcs.
The amount of litter found in the algae wrack was 0.58 pcs./m2, which again confirmed the project’s hypothesis that the amount of litter in the algae wrack is higher than in the nearby sand.
On all the beaches, cigarette butts dominate the overall amount of litter; such is the case in Šventoji as well – 463 pcs. of cigarette butts were found.
