Trash that is 40 years old washed up on the beach of Cape Lookout National Seashore in North Carolina.

A chip bag with a copyright date of 1979 washed ashore.

The Doritos bag was discovered after rangers thought it looked odd.

The National Park Service posted this to Facebook:

The post indicated that, "while this was sort of a neat find due to its age, it serves as a reminder that plastic trash lasts a long time."
