Today (April 24th 2014) we hosted a beach cleanup at Sachuest Beach, Middletown, RI. Forster Orthodontics headed from the concession stand south towards Sachuest Point and Salve Regina University headed north towards Surfers End. A total of 17 people removed 175 pounds of marine debris from the shoreline and surrounding coastal area (dunes, street area).  A great team effort, A W E S O M E ! ! ! However, this is good and bad. On March 8th a team of 136 people scoured this area and removed 1143 pounds of trash. Where is this stuff coming from? A big thanks to everyone who came out today, and thank you to the Town of Middletown for removing the trash afterwards.  Mother Nature continues to give us a chance to fix the problems of the past, Hopefully our efforts and results are being heard across the community and can result in changes in human behavior so that 25 years from now kids won’t have to go to beach cleanups!
