Back in September, Richmond High School and Alhambra High School teamed up on Coastal Clean Up day to clean up Davis Park’s creek area in San Pablo! Several community members also attend and help the interns pick up trash.
Working in teams, the interns tackled the trash problem using the zero litter app on their provided iPads. The app allowed the interns to record several pieces of data on every single piece of trash: GPS location, type of trash, and quantity. Results from the day, as well as results from all other Earth Team litter pick up days, can be seen on the ZeroLitter website HERE. Teams were also geared up with gloves, trash grabbers & bags, and some even braved the coveralls!
In only one day, these interns were able to remove over 2,000 pieces of trash! They were surprised by how many pieces of microtrash they found on the ground and were happy to play a part in making the creek and park a cleaner space. We look forward to more clean ups in the future!
