Nearly 200 volunteers turned out to clean up stretches of Laguna Beach shoreline last month during Coastal Clean Up Day, says organizer James Pribram.

Though unable to weigh their haul, about 500 pound of trash – from a pepper grinder to sleeping bags and beach chairs – were pulled from the sand, estimated Pribram, founder of the Eco-Warrior Foundation, which led the clean up.

Styrofoam and cigarette butts were the worst offender, he said.
