I pick up all my own food microtrash. I also hike with a used ziplock to pick up other people’s litter. So tired of picking up orange and banana peels, apple cores, power gel package tops and granola bar wrappers.

I caught these two trying to peck through the lid of a styrofoam cooler stored in the bed of a pickup truck at the Pothole Point Nature Trail parking lot.
