Carmanville Habitat Committee Beach Cleanup

  

On Saturday, June 4, 2016, the Carmanville Habitat Committee (CHC) sponsored its first beach cleanup, in recognition of World Oceans Day. This day is celebrated annually, on June 8th. The idea is to create awareness of ocean pollution. This year's theme was "Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet" with the focus on reducing plastic pollution, which harms many aquatic species. More than a dozen volunteers, including several committee members and the mayor, Keith Howell, met at the government wharf Saturday morning.

 

Volunteers spent three hours picking up garbage and debris along the north side of Carmanville Harbour. In this short time period, over 60 bags of garbage were collected, along with numerous larger items such as chairs, artificial Christmas trees, TV's, etc. 

 

The Carmanville Harbour Authority provided refreshments to the volunteers following the cleanup. In addition DFO supplied the CHC with work gloves, reusable shopping bags, back packs and pencils to distribute to the volunteers in appreciation for their efforts. 

 

The CHC would like to thank all those who volunteered in any way to make this beach cleanup a success. We look forward to sponsoring additional beach cleanups in the future. By keeping our beaches free of plastics and other debris, we can ensure a healthier ocean and a healthier planet.
