Ep.8 My Experience in the COASTSWEEP Cleanup at Mystic River ~ Boston

Fight Trash for a Healthy Ocean

COASTSWEEP is part of the International Coastal Cleanup organized by Ocean Conservancy in Washington, DC. Volunteers from all over the world collect marine debris and record the types of trash they collect.

I do like be part of activism to help to have a much better world, last October 5th I joined the Somerville Conservation Commission and the Mystic River Watershed Association that together organized the Coast Sweep in Park Draw 7 on the Mystic River in Somerville, a city near Boston.

Also, I had the opportunity to record this episode with Michelle Liebetreu, Development and Communications Director at Mystic River Watershed Association and Cristina Kennedy, volunteer at Somerville Conservation Commission

I was lucky enough to learn more about it, work with other volunteers and back home feeling so inspired.

You can contact for more information with these organizations in the following links :

Note: CoastSweep has been going on in Massachusetts since 1987, and this is the second year that Draw Seven Park was part of the cleanup effort. The trash collection data will be compiled and submitted as part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup.
