To celebrate spooky season, our WDC North America team decided to do our part to tackle a scary problem – plastic pollution! We started last Friday by taking part of our day to clean up trash in the pathway and parking lot next to our office.
After just an hour, we found SO. MUCH. TRASH.
Candy wrappers, cans, election signs, and more! Even if it isn’t directly next to the ocean, doing clean ups are a really important way to help clean our oceans and our planet. For us, trash from that parking lot could easily make it closer and closer to our harbor and could eventually harm marine life. Even if you don’t live near the sea, cleaning up your local areas can help your local wildlife.
With all that in mind, we decided that we were going to do a clean up every Friday in October to help do our part to keep trash out of our ocean.
We would LOVE for you to join us for “Trash-tober”!
It doesn’t take much to start - head out to somewhere in your community with a trash bag and take some time to clean up. Whether it’s for 30 minutes or 3 hours, every little bit helps.
Think of it like trick-or-treating… but instead of a treat bag, you bring a trash bag and instead of going home with candy, you leave with a bag of trash and a cleaner community!
Grab your broomsticks, do some fab-boo-lous clean ups and let’s have some skele-fun!
