The plastic that was collected on the Bohuslän beaches in Sweden consisted largely of various rinse aid and detergent bottles, cans, plastic buckets, and all kinds of plastic packaging. The plastic has not been bleached in the same way as in the great oceans. It is still loud and strong in color. A lot of the found plastic was also drenched in spill oil. The plastic was washed clean and cut in pieces. The bright colored pieces were then punched into circular tokens.

The plastic from Thailand were collected from both beaches and the underwater seabed. It consisted largely of fishing gear such as nets and plastic ropes. The divers had to cut the nets and plastic bags loose from the staghorn coral reef. There were also large chunks of styrofoam drifting in the waters and large amounts of household garbage, plastic bags, buckets, drink bottles and detergent containers.
