WHAT: Love Fest Clean-Up
COORDINATOR(s): Jeff Schlekie
WHEN: Sat. July 13, 5:00 pm
MEET-UP: Bedford Commons, 750 Broadway Ave. Bedford OH 44146, look for green shirts!
WHY: Litter destroys communities.
CLEAN-UP EVENT DESCRIPTION: Before we divide into teams, volunteers are taught how to recycle and are educated on the effects of litter. We will spread out in teams of five, removing as much litter as possible. Volunteers will primarily focus on removing litter from the event area, local sidewalks, playgrounds, and parks. Litter is everywhere. This clean-up is an opportunity for employees or students to receive community service hours.
Our cleaning events are organized passionately by people who volunteer to pick up litter. We encourage others to create change in hopes to inspire an environmentally friendly culture. Litter is a distraction. Litter also disturbs people. Without litter, resources are more accessible. People tend to gravitate towards cleaner areas spending more money with local businesses. Making the environment more attractive improves the economy.
