This retraction pole by #Pinsparkle is magnetic and as such is the perfect tool for when my kids and I go out ty o help clean up our beach h.g es and parks. It attracts beer and soda tabs as well as pop tops from bottles. It even has helped reward my kids with change they've found while helping to clean up the beaches and parks. We do this to help preserve our beaches and parks for future generations. And this tool is fun.
