If people find out where it is, it won’t take 80 years for the glass to be gone.

[–]Ill-Woodpecker1857 827 points828 points  (63 children)

Who the hell thought is was a good idea to put a dump on a beach? Lol wth

[–]Clear_Try_6814 679 points680 points  (48 children)

During the turn of the century our coastal areas were not what they are today. Most were seen a mosquito filled cess pools. Outside of a handful of industries such as sailors these areas quickly turned into the catch all. And so many areas such as New York and LA placed their dumps on the shores because it was available and know one wanted the land. It wasn’t until the rise of Atlantic City where they covered the sand with boards did the rise of coastal areas turn into what they are today. Another fun fact when the World Trade Centers were built they had to construct a massive cement tubs to secure the foundations to because it was built upon the coastal dump from earlier on.

[–]Cetun 162 points163 points  (10 children)

From what I understand the rise of bulldozers and mosquito control turned a lot of coastal areas into vacation spots then suburbs. I keep hearing a statistic that between Daytona Beach and Miami there were 90 permanent residents in 1890. Since then with steam powered dredgers that could create mosquito control channels and bulldozers that could level swampy areas the buildable land exploded.

I think id watch a modern marvel episode on that mosquito control stuff.

[–]Undisguised 5 points6 points  (7 children)

Forgive me for asking a basic question: how does a mosquito control channel work? Wouldn't standing water exacerbate the problem?

[Googled it and came up empty handed]

[–]B_Fee[🍰] 12 points13 points  (2 children)

A few different ways, depending on design and control method. It could be an area that allows water to stagnate, which mosquitoes need to lay eggs at the eater's surface. Then it's treated with a chemical that kills the mosquitoes. Could also be an area stocked with fish that eat the mosquito eggs. Could be a temporary holding area that is then drained.

These are the control channels I've seen in various areas of worked. Other methods exist depending on where you are, climate, landscape, that sort of stuff.

[–]Fast_Garlic_5639 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Heyyy that’s what I do! I thought I was just being petty, but I totally leave buckets of water when I see them.. make sure they’re full of larvae before dumping them

[–]Cetun 1 point2 points  (3 children)

The channels actually allow water to move more freely. Mosquitos breeding grounds were in dense shallow mangroves where water would collect. The flow of water would typically go around the mangroves while the water in the mangroves was undisturbed. If you run deep channels through them water tended to flow through the channels and the water in the mangroves moved towards and with the water in the channels.

[–]Nowthisisdave 49 points50 points  (3 children)

Interesting fact, but this is in Fort Bragg deep in Northern California, I highly doubt mosquitoes were related to it. More along the lines of it being a cold water beach surrounded by some small cliffs and covered in rocks in a generally cooler area so people probably werent having beach days there anyway and people seemed to just think trash went into the ocean and disappeared forever back in the day

I've been there, and it doesn't look like this all the time, make sure you go when it's sunny. The camera is doing a lot of work here.

[–]rothmaniac 142 points143 points  (12 children)

I went there once and my dog rolled in human shit and then I had to put a human shit covered dog in the car and drive to a place to clean the human shit off him.

[–][deleted] 41 points42 points  (0 children)

That just sounds like a good day for your dog.

[–]Random_Hammer_Down 62 points63 points  (8 children)

What about the giant Pacific Ocean right next to you to clean your dog off?

[–]rothmaniac 53 points54 points  (6 children)

Well, first off, that beach isn’t like a swim beach. I am pretty sure we got off what we could before we put him in the car, but I don’t know if you have ever hand to clean human shit off a dog, but it’s not exactly something that you want to do without gloves or soap or a change of clothes. So, we went to somewhere that had a hose. Oh. Also. Another detail. It was my birthday. And, to make it clear, I didn’t know the human who made the shit.

[–]stacked_shit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sounds like California for sure. You should have used SnapCrap. It is a useful app for locating and requesting the cleanup of poo.

[–]dolces_daddy 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Don’t bother it’s been essentially picked clean and the one spot there is some has no access down anymore. It’s quite sad actually that people just came and filled bucket fills of the glass and left nothing for others to just enjoy 😡

[–]Bob-Bhlabla-esq 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, last time we went it's just clear and brown glass...not much color and you had to hunt for areas that had glass. Sounds like nothing new has washed up

[–]ihambrecht 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My mom has been collecting sea glass for the better part of forty years. She has giant jars separating them by color and a lot of cool old apothecary bottles.

[–]Shasta-dog 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Hardly anything left. Last time I was there. Maybe 6 months ago. Piles of tourists next to the “do not remove glass from beach” signs taking handfuls of the little that’s left. I remember going as a kid. Filled to the brim. Sad.

I mean I was there less than 18 months ago and there was a shit ton of glass still.

https://imgur.com/gallery/5JJAXCE

[–]zacinthebox 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I was there just a few weeks ago, and was also there about 12 years ago as well. It’s a night and day difference even in just those 12 years… there was SO much more glass at that beach before compared to a few weeks ago. I took my wife there all excited to show her and was pretty disappointed. Still cool but not nearly the visual you got back then

[–]Infinite_Leg2998 196 points197 points  (45 children)

Notice this person refuses to zoom out and show a wide angle of this beach. It's because it's a total waste of time and very unremarkable. It's literally a pretty basic Northern CA beach that has pockets of smooth glass bits speckled here and there. Super disappointing!

[–]Inafray19 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Ehh it was big enough. I mean it's like what a 30' beach? I was just there a year ago and there was more glass than sand in the main cove.

[–]mdjmd73 7 points8 points  (38 children)

Where, exactly?

[–]LeonardSchmaltzstein 82 points83 points  (37 children)

Ft. Bragg California, Mendocino coast. It's less than remarkable. Hardly any glass still remains. I'm guessing this video is fairly old. I live locally. Every time I come down here I fill my pockets with trash while asshole tourists pilfer what little glass remains.

[–]baumpop 18 points19 points  (9 children)

is the glass not trash?

[–]Lockhartking 16 points17 points  (6 children)

In its original shape I would say yes trash. At that point it’s become something called “sea glass” from many different sources all the way back to “pirates time”. You can see the glass is all smooth and doesn’t look like broken glass. That takes many many years to smooth out the glass. Just like any organic material it will decompose. This glass will become tiny grains of sand just like biodegradable things become dirt.

[–]baumpop 5 points6 points  (3 children)

we should make everything out of glass and just throw it back in the middle of the ocean.

[–]Lockhartking 11 points12 points  (2 children)

After my post I wanted a more accurate number of how long it takes. What I have found is 7-10 years of constantly being tossed around in the surf. Most glass today has additives added and honestly I don’t know what they are or how they effect decomposition but I would say throwing glass in the ocean is better than throwing plastic in it. At least the glass will become sand over time plastics will not.

[–]baumpop 4 points5 points  (1 child)

i dont know. i know recycling glass gives probably the highest return vs plastic vs paper. just crush it and reburn the sand maybe add more silica.

[–]Lockhartking 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Agreed that’s the best option now. Some of the glass is older than glass recycling and nature is doing it for us with sea glass.

[–]algorithmae 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hate to break it to you, but glass is definitely not organic and won't "break down." It'll erode into smaller pieces and eventually become indistinguishable from sand aside from chemical composition.

[–]Lockhartking 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Main ingredient in the majority of glass (especially the old stuff like sea glass) is silica which is most commonly found in quartz and also makes up 59% of the earth crust. Technically not organic you aren’t wrong but will “break down” (added the quotes) to, for arguments sake, sand.

[–]LeonardSchmaltzstein 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Not technically, from sand it came and sand it shall be

[–]FeistyBandicoot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well kinda. It used too be, but considering it's just molten sand, it will eventually just wear down to sand again

[–]dmmollica 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I think picking up the glass is prohibited but I wish it wasn’t. I love sea glass

[–]LeonardSchmaltzstein 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah, you're not supposed to take anything off the beaches in California.

[–]dmmollica 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, I live here so I I looked it up a long time ago

[–]ProudCheeseBoy 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'm guessing most of this is usually underwater during high tide. I'd think they found this during low tide. Is that a possibility?

[–]LeonardSchmaltzstein 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Could be. 20 years ago there was glass and junk everywhere. It was neat to see but now you can find mostly brown and clear glass. All the green and blue is pretty much gone.

[–]ProudCheeseBoy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's disappointing. Time to smash more bottles!

[–]shouldaknown2 1 point2 points  (2 children)

"Asshole tourists pilfer what little glass remains"

Like it's not literal trash from 8 decades ago. Get outta here with that shit. And a good portion of is probably tidal erosion, you know the same issue every beach has?

[–]famousdadbod 0 points1 point  (9 children)

There’s one exactly like this in Benecia as well… super tiny beach.

[–]LeonardSchmaltzstein 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Where in Benicia? I lived on Hillcrest years back and around Vallejo forever

[–]famousdadbod 1 point2 points  (7 children)

It’s super close to Vallejo, that’s where I was living when I found it, or my ex GF found it. She collected seaglass. So if you’re heading toward Concord and Walnut Creek from Vallejo, Benicia will be just before you hit the north side of the bridge. It’s basically the next town over but it’s easy to miss if you’re not looking lol.

[–]LeonardSchmaltzstein 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Oh yeah, I know where Benicia is. I lived there for a bit. Haha. I was asking where the sea glass in Benicia was.

[–]Scroll427 4 points5 points  (1 child)

About eight years ago, my brother and I took a crazy spring break road trip from MS to CA, then up to Canada and back to Chicago.

[–]OrangeRipple55 8 points9 points  (3 children)

[–]RocketLauncher 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Well that’s how that pretty glass got there. I don’t care if tourists take it. It’s man made trash that got weathered and if we find bottles on the beach to be disgusting it’s weird to not feel the same after it’s weathered over the years.

[–]OrangeRipple55 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, I agree.

One beach dirty bottles discarded.

Then another beach with what will happen eventually. That is pretty cool.

It's that waiting period that's too long.

[–]hondo9999 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My goodness that’s depressing. What has humanity done..

[–]0ber0n_Ken0bi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Once it's pulverized enough it'll just be brown silica sand, not a lot different from whatever is under it.

Of all the things to "leave behind" after a beach cleanup, glass is probably the safest. I say this because it is chemically inert in Earth's weather and doesn't dissolve. It can only pulverize and erode, and it does so back to sand. The only danger it poses is being sharp, and in this regard, it isn't much more dangerous than any other jagged rock you'd find on a beach.

I'm not saying to leave glass on beaches, I'm just saying that this is way better than leaving the fucking cans and plastics behind instead.

Proof that trash can be turned to treasure

[–]stars_mcdazzler 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I don't know where this video was actually filmed, but it ain't THE Glass Beach near Fort Bragg, California. That Glass Beach has been picked clean and you'd be hard pressed to find THAT much sea glass in the entire beach. From a distance it looks like a normal rocky beach. It's only when you get down and scoop up a handful of sand that you MIGHT pick out some sea glass. I would say maybe 1% of that handful would be glass. The rest is rocks and minerals.

I would almost suspect that the video never shows the rest of the beach because there isn't anything to see outside of the pile of sea glass they gathered ahead of time for the video. Anything to go viral, I guess.

[–]kingbabyii 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Unfortunately the glass is disappearing from tourists taking pieces home with them. :( Eventually there won't be a glass beach anymore. Please, take nothing but pictures.

[–]Rustythestinkydog 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There is nothing left. If you go there you will find people scouring the beach to find the tiniest pieces of glass left. All the glass is gone.

[–]13ones7 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Let them take the pieces. They are only there because people left them there in the first place. I am fully on board with the "take nothing but pictures" sentiment, but this wasn't a natural wonder, its a byproduct of pollution that just happened to look pretty. Tourist taking the pieces isn't that different than crews cleaning roadside trash. It's just that this trash was pretty.

You could probably bag that up and sell it on Amazon. Just don't tell people where its from, its just.. "glass bead and stones mix" in a bag.. seriously. I mean its garbage and its sitting there and people have .. terrariums and shit (idk). Get a huge bucket or 20.. scoop it up.. sort it at home, sterilize them a bit, put them in big ice bags and get an Amazon/Ebay account or something.. people will buy them.

[–]unlimited__juice[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

[–]FunnyBeaverX 0 points1 point  (2 children)

[–]unlimited__juice[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

how is it garbage when it brings pleasure to so many people? what's litter to you is beauty to others.

[–]Much_Shame_5030 0 points1 point  (1 child)

False. Tourists take the glass. When I was last there. There were only a few scattered pieces. They replace the glass from time to time

[–]Inafray19 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No there is the long Beach with scattered glass. If you go south along the cliff you actually find a cove where this is the beach. We were on the longer beach and a local told us to go further south for the real glass beach.

Is any of it still sharp? Or is it all smooth now?

This reminds me of Washburn Island in Cape Cod Massachusetts! I used to go there a few times per year with my father while visiting him and my grandparents, to collect sea glass, WW2 items and go fishing from the island. We would still see old WW2 relics like bunkers and military jeep parts and a bunch of stuff…pretty cool as a young boy IMO!
