so proud of these girls for braving the elements and picking up trash at the lake today! (unfortunately in plastic containers, but still) 🌎 we moved to lake erie 4 yrs ago and we love kayaking and being at the water! it's so crazy to see how much plastic makes it's way to our harbor. cutting back your consumption of the initial product is key. even just finding a better balance. recycling is great but it's no long term solution and can be saved for glass, paper, & metals. 🌏 get out of your house and go to a major water source or river regularly. when it's out of sight it's out of mind and most people in northeast ohio can't see a direct result of where the trash ends up once it leaves their driveway.
thanks @greengirlgang @staceymartinfiebig @kdoylerulz @braaap12 @across420 @rockthelakecle @lakemetroparks
and all the other instagrammers here for keeping everyone's eyes on lake erie through social media, inspiring more of us to visit and explore the shore. 💙
