Shoreline Cleanup Event in Montreal with Ophélie!

Project Description

I hosted a Shoreline cleanup at Parc de la Promenade Bellerive in Montreal and educated friends and members of the community about waterway plastic pollution. In just under 2 hours, 12 volunteers picked up 9.5 kg of trash! I also held a “trash BINGO” to and gave out participation prizes, such as kayak day trips with Espace Navi!

What was your biggest challenge?

Getting folks excited to participate in a cleanup was difficult! But even though we only had 12 volunteers, they were all really happy to be there and lend a helping hand.

What was your most valuable takeaway?

Learned about plastic pollution and organization of events (publicity, etc).
