June 7th, 2018: New Jersey Trash

During Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 a sign belonging to Diane Turton Realtors got washed away from Brielle, New Jersey.
It turned up 5.5 years later in May of 2018 on a beach near Bordeaux, France.



Quote:
The oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer, who studies how floating objects drift, told the Times that the sign’s journey made for “really good scientific data.” Based on the speed and direction of known ocean currents, he says, the sign might have actually spent the five-and-a-half years on an ambassadorial schedule: crossing to Europe once, heading back to Jersey, and then going to France again.


The sign was 18 by 24 inches and about an inch thick and made of plastic composite.
