Brickell River & Bay Cleanup

Saturday, September 10, 2016 at 08:30 AM · 2 rsvps

This is the first of a series of events from LiveCleanLoveBrickell A community's initiative for the Care of our neighbourhood
#Care4Brickell. ♻️ @LiveCleanLoveBrickell
We are to start with a mindfulness class to activate ourselves and later divide in groups to work on the designated areas

Objectives ⚠️
The idea is to collect the trash that is located around the walkway to the bay so that it doesn't make it to the water were it not only pollutes, and threatens the local ecosystem, it will also make it to the ocean. We have two check in Areas marked with a red dot in the map and two target points with SOS that will require more effort.

The target areas will require special dedication because either they are not very accessible or because the accumulation of trash is very high. Two examples are; the River by the S.Miami Bridge, this will require cleaning in Kayaks or Paddle Boards ✅(Checking Point American Social House Restaurant). Second Example the rocky area by the Four Ambassadors Marina checking point ( 800 Brickell) 

Home work before the event

if possible download the app from the Ocean Conservancy "Clean Swell" it will help them deliver a global snapshot of ocean trash, providing researchers and policy-makers insight to inform solutions and it will help you:

  • Record every item of trash you collect.
  • Share your Cleanup results and impact with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email. 
  • Track your total distance cleaned. 
  • See the total weight of the trash you collect. 
  • Keep a historical record of your Cleanup efforts.
  • Create ocean trash solutions by contributing to a global database and helping to identify trends.
  • Learn scientific facts about the impact of trash on ocean animals and what you can do to help.


What to Bring?
One pair of reusable rubber or cloth globes 
If posible a bucket (si that you can dispose of any sharps in there)
Trash bags ( this is a comunity effort with no funding we are asking for donations but at least one per person is better to be safe)
Close Toe Shoes
Wear sun protection ( even so early it can get hot)
Snacks and water preferably in a reusable bottle 
Yoga Mat if you are taking the class 
And a lot of positive vibes ✨
