Our Water Program and Youth Network took on the Great Manitoba Shoreline Cleanup! The project was an exciting combination of community building, environmental action, and citizen science.
The results: The winning number was 895! 895 what? Cigarette butts – yuck! These lovely little bits of highly toxic, persistent, soon to be microplastic pieces were found in a pretty good number on this very recently cleaned site. It is crazy what we could come up with after the site had already been cleaned! Our total was 43 Kg/95 pounds of garbage. Thank you to everyone who attended!
