Earth Week + National Volunteer week = Great River Clean up!

What great timing!  It's National Volunteer Week and Earth Week.  So let's combine the two!  And voila, we volunteer to clean up the environment!

This Saturday (April 21) BonaResponds will be cleaning along the Allegheny River and Olean Creek.  Why?  Not only does garbage in the river and along the banks look bad, it also gets into the oceans and can cause major health problems to wildlife.

Here is a great presentation that Melissa put together on the River Clean up:

Get the Litter Out of the River!

and here is a video (a few years old) that shows the problems of plastics reaching the ocean:
