Brickell River & Bay Cleanup
- IMPORTANT UPDATES-
START TIME FOR THE EVENT @930 AM
MEETING POINT @ GRASSY AREA BY 800 BRICKELL AVENUE
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
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.
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.
