A River Cleanup With A Twist

Windsor-Water-Restoraton-Event--LizDohrmanApril 13, 2015, www.americanrivers.org | “Stacks of muddy tires, bags bursting with plastic bottles, and an assortment of rusted out shopping carts and bike frames are what we typically have to show off at the end of a river cleanup…During the last week of March I joined 60 Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. (Keurig) volunteers for a river restoration event along Bennett’s Creek…Instead of sending out our volunteers with trash bags and pickers we handed out shovels and wheel barrows. Instead of digging tires out of the banks and snatching trash floating down stream our volunteers planted trees and shrubs and spread mulch cover.”

“National River Cleanup joined Keurig and the Nansemond River Preservation Alliance for volunteer river restoration activities in Suffolk, Virginia.
