I really commend you on bringing back your shards as well. Do you bring them back for study as the main purpose or is it also a conservation act as well once disturbed in the soil. I commend that act too, leave it better then you found it. And then my third question is, do you recycle the glass bits you bring back( do you have glass recycling there). I’m a sea glass collector and very little of it is found in the us any more due to conservation and laws preventing dumping in the ocean and water ways. It would be great if that could be returned to an ocean to become sea glass. The modern recycled glass is not heavy enough to hold up to the tumbling of the ocean. Up in Fort Bragg next to Mendocino CA was a dump at the ocean edge from the 18880’s up and into the 1950’s. It was burned daily and pushed into the ocean. The tin cans with the salt turned into a metal amalgam with broken glass in twined in it. The decades of salt water licking and tumbling has created “glass beach” I took a weekend at low tide in the 90’s when you could scour the beach for beach glass( the beach was literally 14” deep in broken glass for about 200 feet down the beach. I found a lot of the cobalt beach glass at low tide out some way. It is a state beach now and harvesting the glass is prohibited by the law. It’s about 10 inches deep now but mostly white window glass, all the great colors have been picked out.
