Hats off to our Environmental Committee as they helped clean up Sunnyside Beach on Saturday, September 14, 2019. The external event facilitated by Parley for the Oceans, is one of the 50 beach clean-ups happening coast to coast throughout the summer. Alongside dozens of other community members, a group from our very own Environmental Committee spent the morning retrieving everything from beads of Styrofoam scattered in the sand, to plastic straws and bottle caps lodged in driftwood. The plastic retrieved from the now-much-cleaner shoreline has been given a second chance to be upcycled and (more importantly) kept out of our beautiful Lake Ontario.
Kudos to West Park Environmental Committee members Clara Phillips, Jay Vagh and John Richmond for their participation. Thank you for making a difference!
