GREATER PROVIDENCE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Save The Bay offers volunteers opportunities to join or lead Earth Day cleanups throughout April


Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on March 28.

In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Save The Bay has organized several beach cleanups around Narragansett Bay, giving individuals, families and groups many options for getting involved, before, during and after the Earth Day weekend.

"Cleanups are a direct way to help the Bay and take a stand for a clean environment," said July Lewis, volunteer and internship manager at Save The Bay. "And you can really see the difference you make when you’ve completed a cleanup!"

Save The Bay also offers training and resources to individuals who are interested in organizing cleanups at sites in their community. "It’s not hard to run your own cleanup," explained Lewis. "We make sure that we provide cleanup leaders with all the tools they need at a cleanup leader training."
