Brickell Bay Green Team Shoreline Cleanup
We will be meeting behind the First Presbyterian Church on Brickell Avenue. Parking is free in the church parking lot! The Green Team will be near the water so look for us near the back of the parking lot!
The team wants to first thank everyone for coming out on our last outing where we cleaned up approximately 1200-1400 pounds of trash out of Brickell Bay behind the AON building, BRAVO! We brought together some great people on a mission and met some wonderful people that we can't thank enough for their time and energy.
Please join us in our next project. We are hitting the Bay hard over the next couple of clean ups because we are starting to see so much trash being accumulated on the outer banks of the bay that it is absolutely disgusting and this may be one of our biggest projects yet. We recently surveyed the area and found some very disturbing things behind the First Presbyterian Church that need and require some TLC. These pictures more so show the location of what we are cleaning but do NOT show just how bad this area needs help.
This image represents the nicest and probably easiest part that we will be cleaning up but the next set of images are just plain disturbing. How can a city, a county, or even people walking by NOT stop and at least pick up a bottle and can? We want to change that and help make a difference and it starts with individual assistance and community support, we thank you in advance!
We have ropes, bottles, cans, trash, foam, shoes, clothing, appliance parts and all! Anything that you can help us with would be fantastic! We will be bringing trash bags, gloves, waters and we're working on some trash pickers. If you can bring some things that will make our lives easier, that would be great and we would be appreciative!
Please help this inner community grow by supporting local Brickell initiatives. We are always looking for sponsors and individuals willing to help this cause so if you know of anyone or business that wan't to participate please let me know and I'll be happy to contact them directly. Once again, I thank you in advance for any help and we are adding new sponsors daily!
We love our Brickell, let's keep it cleaner and greener!
