Volunteer Spotlight: Zero Waste Cleanup Volunteers
This month, I Love A Clean San Diego would like to recognize the group of 79 volunteers who participated in our Zero Waste Cleanup in December! This cleanup kicked off our Zero Waste option through our popular volunteer program, Adopt-A-Beach. The volunteers met at Cannon Park in Carlsbad to do a Beach Cleanup using only reusable supplies! Volunteers brought buckets, work gloves and reusable water bottles and they picked up nearly 200 pounds of litter without creating any additional waste! Did you know that you can schedule your own zero waste cleanup any time through Adopt-A-Beach? We will lend you all the tools you need to make your cleanup as sustainable as possible. Visit www.AdoptSD.org to get involved!
