Green Light – Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

It’s sad, but true: the natural beauty of waterways is often marred by litter tossed by careless beachgoers. And not only is it unattractive, but It’s also dangerous to the wildlife who inhabit the coastal and lakeside areas.

The good news is that It’s easy to make a difference. Between September 15 and 23 you can participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a cross-country series of events that allow Canadians to ?work together to help clean up a specific area at one of their local waterways.? Check the website to find a cleanup site near you?or coordinate your own. Let’s take some responsibility for our natural heritage!
