Green Streets Ain’t Afraid of the Heat!

Last week our Portland Surfrider Green Streets Northside Crew picked up over 60 gallons of litter off North Portland streets and bioswales. This committed bunch of seven volunteers braved the 90 degree heat and picked up a lot of litter left over from the July 4th holiday. This 60 gallons of litter (the volume of your fridge) most likely would have  made it’s way into our local waterways and eventually the ocean. Green Streets is a great way to take a local action that directly impacts the ocean resources our globe shares!

Green Streets – Over 75 Gallons of Garbage!

This past Wednesday, 7 Surfrider Volunteers met up in North Portland to help out on their monthly Green Streets neighborhood cleanup. Over the course of 2 hours they picked up over 75 gallons worth of waste off the streets. That’s about the same volume as a refrigerator! Picking up this litter keeps it out of our local waterways and the ocean.
