Communities love their Water:
Reasons to get involved or start a water cleanup project:
I live in Quebec, Canada and we are blessed with rivers, streams and lakes! There are community grants and programs to help clean up these shore lines and restore water quality:
Here are the reasons why you might want to get involved:
You’ve noticed litter and it pisses you off!
You remember the beauty and safety of your shore lines!
You want to feel your water is safe and healthy to hang out and swim.
You think wildlife and nature deserve are care and stewardship!
You know that Tons of trash is more than just an eyesore, but a global problem. Act local- think global is your motto!
And you know that if it’s not dealt with, trash and spills are toxic and will seep into the ground and contaminate us and life all around it.
