In addition to simply collecting trash, we supported a project to register the collected trash with the Dive Against Debris Survey online so that researchers and individuals around the world can view the status of marine debris free of charge.

This is the analysis result data of the garbage collected this time. Since it is not the garbage collected from under water, it cannot be registered in the Dive Against Debris online survey, so we publish it here.

The beach where we conducted the cleanup and analysis survey (Palm Beach) is not only a place for divers, but also a place for local Filipinos to relax, eat and drink with their friends and families.
Analysis by weights
We found an overwhelming number of glass bottles. There were also many plastic bottles, but in terms of weight, glass bottles came out on top.
Disposable diapers were not really a concern, as they absorb water and become heavier.
Also, wood chips are not a marvel, as they return to the soil very quickly, but we are stepping up our collection of wood chips containing seawater, as leaving them on the ground is destructive to the environment.
Analysis by number of items
Glass bottles and plastic bottles made up just under 80% of the garbage collected this time.
