Hey COASSTers! We had a great tip passed along this week from a fellow volunteer who has found a novel way of organizing her zip ties. Check it out and give it a try!
“We used one large-ish (2 inch diamater) spice container (it had had cinnamon in it, so the smell was a plus!) to contain the entire color spectrum of zip ties we take in the field. With the large, square end of the zip tie facing up in the container, it was easy to see the colors and to grab an individual tie, even wearing nitrile gloves! We covered the color code sheet with a plastic baggie and taped it to the outside of the container for reference purposes. It worked pretty well. Feel free to pass the method along to others!”
