A Fishing Line Stretched Across the Country Gets Recycled

The BoatUS Foundation collected nearly 2700 miles of discarded fishing line last year at 1200 fishing line recycling bins like this one at Eureka Public Marina in Northern California.

New Sites Needed for BoatUS Foundation Reel In and Recycle Program

Ready for a roadtrip? If you packed your bags – and tacklebox – and drove from Washington, DC to San Diego, California, you would travel nearly 2,700 miles. That’s also the amount of fishing line that was recycled through the BoatUS Foundation's Reel In and Recycle Program last year, which gives anglers an easy way to recycle fishing line at over a thousand locations across the country.

“This effort happens as a result of many individuals and organizations,” said BoatUS Foundation Director of Environmental Programs Susan Shingledecker. “In the last two years we’ve built and distributed nearly 1,200 fishing line recycling bins to local groups around the country. These three-foot tall PVC storage tubes keep discarded fishing line out of our waterways and helps protect fish, birds and other wildlife from entanglement,” added Shingledecker.

Americans 'Deeply Divided' -- Again

Connie Schultz
There's no shortage of people willing to inflict withering judgments on other people's lives, especially when it comes to how we define what it means to be a family, as a new Pew Research Center poll shows.  Worrying what others might think of our version of family is an exercise full of pain with no gain. Pew's recent finding: "The American public is sharply divided in its judgments about the sweeping changes in the structure of the American family that have unfolded over the past half century."
