I Love A Clean San Diego hosts Valentine’s Day Cleanup Event
More than 230 people swapped flowers and chocolates for litter pickers and bags during I Love A Clean San Diego’s (ILACSD) annual Cupid’s Cleanup in celebration of Valentine’s Day. ILACSD encouraged volunteers to bring their own reusable items such as water bottles, work gloves and buckets to promote zero waste practices.
Volunteers and their Valentines removed 259 pounds of trash and 222 pounds of recyclables at the event, which took place in Hourglass Field Community Park and the surrounding neighborhood. In addition, volunteers stenciled 14 storm drains with a litter prevention message.
Following the event, Cutwater Spirits‘ Miramar location offered a discount on food and drinks to all volunteers to help them continue feeling the love after the cleanup!
