Picking up litter is a great way to get out there and make a difference in keeping our region beautiful, as trash and litter have a profoundly negative impact on the environment, wildlife, and people. There are trash pick-ups happening all across the Cape Fear region, and while trash pick-up events are a great way to meet new people and get an area cleaned up in a short amount of time, there’s a lot of work that we can do everyday.
Next time you’re out and about, bring along a reusable bag to pick up litter you find. Snap a picture of any surprising litter, and send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll share them here and on our social media to raise awareness of the impact of trash on our everyday lives.
