Are you as tired of picking up water bottles and other trash as we are? Then please join forces with us!
The Friends of Accotink Creek and a growing list of like-minded environmental groups have teamed up to form a "Trash Action Work Force" and lead our first action this spring. We have been leading stream cleanups for many years, and despite hundreds of our volunteers removing thousands of bags of trash from local streams over the years, it just keeps coming back. We need to start addressing this issue at its source!
On Thursday, October 26th, 4-6pm, we will lead a Trash Day of Action: Battle of the Bottle (http://www.accotink.org/2017/BattleoftheBottle2017.htm) at the headquarters of the International Bottled Water Association in Alexandria, Virginia, calling on them to take the lead on meaningful actions to reduce plastic bottle waste in Virginia watersheds.
We will march peacefully and legally around the building, and engage and inspire the morning's commuters with creative signs, trash-themed costumes, and hand-outs.
Join us! We need volunteers with good ideas and partners to help with planning and outreach, and we want lots of happy people who care about their streams and rivers participating with us in our Day of Action!
