If you decide to use item count, you'll have the ability to record whether your trash trap collection microdebris and/or macrodebris.
Ratings and Reviews
Better than ever!
I’ve always loved doing cleanups at the beach or my local park with Clean Swell, and the new update makes it even better! The interface is really clean and easy to used and the Take Action page has great articles about plastic pollution and ways to get involved beyond cleaning up.
I think it’s so cool that everything I collect can be used for scientific research to help prevent plastic pollution in the first place!
Data surveying for academia and preserving ecology.
Excellent idea, should have apps for every terrain. The more accessibly to data the better the picture.
