Reflections on Kealia Pond Beach Clean-up

July 7, 2010 at 9:21 pm Leave a comment

Mahalo to everyone who took time out of their busy lives to help with our quarterly beach clean-up at Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge. We had a good turnout. It feels good to spend a couple of hours of time each quarter to get out there and make our home a better place to live. A special thank you to Community Work Day for their great support in providing the tools to make the job easier and for picking up the filled trash bags.

One of the things that come to mind as we are picking up trash is that no one is free of the responsibility of creating litter. We find trash from every possible source. We see items from retail and food establishments, medical facilities, construction companies, and non-profits as well as everyone else. Of course, the amazing thing we find is that even in this dry, dangerous season, we find hundreds of cigarette butts which were obviously thrown out of the passing vehicles. It is not surprising that we have terrible fires each year.

I hope to see you again next quarter. Contact teri at southmauisustainability dot org for more information.
