Team Up to Clean Up Saturday & Sunday, April 24 & 25

Team Up to Clean Up Saturday & Sunday, April 24 & 25

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The local non-profit Sustainable Saratoga invites you to team up with them on Saturday, April 24, and Sunday, April 25, to clean up neighborhoods, streets and trails for Earth Day. 

“We're seeing extra plastic pollution and pandemic-related litter this year – things like masks and gloves – littering our streets and sidewalks,” said Whitney Davis, a Sustainable Saratoga board member and co-chair of their Zero Waste Committee, in a statement. “We were looking for a COVID-safe activity to both reduce the impact of the litter on the environment and raise awareness about the chronic problem of litter pollution in our local communities. This event lets us do that.” 

While COVID has limited the opportunity for large groups to gather, Sustainable Saratoga has designed this event so that anyone can participate by volunteering an hour or two to clean up an area of their choosing. 

So, grab some trash bags, gloves and friends to clean our roadsides and neighborhoods on Earth Day weekend! 

Sustainable Saratoga requests that you register (forms.gle/AoyQsUK9v3wA8wWY6) for the event so they can keep track of the impact that participants collectively make that weekend. They will also have free ice cream certificates, donated by Stewart’s, for the first 100 confirmed participants.
