Yesterday we had the final AFTER5 cleanup of the summer season with great turnout from Salve Regina University! This summer we performed 16 cleanups at 2nd Beach with 303 people working together and removed 509 pounds of marine debris. Year to Date we have removed 9,756 pounds of marine debris from our island with the AWESOME help of 981 volunteers! Now our cleanup program takes a 16 day vacation and then we ramp-up the Marine Debris Solutions Lifecycle Project (MDSLP) on September 19th as part of the International Coastal Cleanup. In October thru April we will host 2 major cleanups per month, continue with the MDSLP at Sachuest Point and put the MDSLP into action from Fort Adams to Melville Boat Basin. This expansion of the MDSLP is because of people like you, and funding from 11th Hour Racing. Enjoy the day!
