Another organization, Save The Bay, has launched a campaign to address a significant problem and protect Rhode Island’s coastline:
Help us launch a new #livelitterfree campaign to not only cleanup litter from our shorelines, but to prevent litter at the source — all over the Narragansett Bay region! WPRI is running some public services announcements in the coming weeks, but we need YOU to help kick it off today!
Why? Volunteers at Save The Bay cleanups across the Narragansett Bay watershed have, time and time again, watched recently-cleaned beaches quickly become tarnished by litter again — sometimes in less than one week. The Litter Free Pledge was born from the desire to protect our beautiful communities from the persistent presence of litter. After all, litter is more than just an inconvenient eyesore; it’s a threat to humans and wildlife alike.
The Litter Free Pledge is designed to inspire people to change behavior and make a public commitment to not litter — not ever — not even one piece! Take the pledge and pass it on! #litterfreepledge #livelitterfree
