I read where some 375 people participated in the 12th annual Blacks Run Cleanup project and picked up over 6,000 pounds of trash during the effort.
Many thanks to the nearly 400 outstanding members of our community who participated in making
Yours is an example of working together to have positive impact.
6,000 pounds of garbage? Wow. That bears repeating,
Six thousand pounds of garbage...
To put this into a visual perspective, one 16 ounce water or soft drink bottle made of PET plastic weighs around 1/8th of an ounce when empty.
8 bottles per oz. 128 bottles per lb.
6,000 lb picked up is the equivalent of more than three quarters of a million plastic bottles...
Thanks so very much again to the responsible and invested folks who work to clean up
You are true blessings to our community.
And shame on the folks who pitch garbage onto the ground and into the stream.
