With growing community participation in their events, GarbageinPR.com is asking the community to weigh in on what their sustainability priorities are.
“We’ve had such a great response to our clothing drives and beach cleanups that we thought it would be good to reach out and see what people want us to be doing,” said organizer Allison Calder.
The October 26 clothing drive, the second organized by GarbageinPR, brought in over 250 bags of clothing to distribute to several charities in the county and north of the border. “The turnout again exceeded our expectations so we will look at having two clothing drives next year, one in spring and one in the fall,” Calder said.
The group also organized two beach cleanups in 2019. Cando Recycling and Disposal partnered in the latest cleanup, providing their small garbage truck to dispose of what was taken off the beaches.
The survey, which can be found at bit.ly/35mvOoV, takes less than five minutes and asks what respondents are doing now to promote sustainable living in their home and community, what they aspire to do and what kinds of events and programs would help them get there. “We’re going to use this information to plan for next year,” Calder said, adding that they are considering adding classes and bringing in speakers on topics that have strong community interest.
