Cleaning Our Neighbourhoods: From Beaches to Parks

“I hope that we influenced others to be more aware that cleanups are happening around the city, to be more aware of their garbage, and not to leave litter in parks.”

“As a society, we consume a lot more than our planet can take on. As a result, we have litter in all sorts of places in many different sizes. This ultimately puts our waterways and resources at risk of pollution and environmental degradation. It is important to realize that, especially with plastic pollution, every little bit counts, and can turn into even smaller plastic pieces, which can harm human, wildlife and ecosystem health.”
