Are you as tired of picking up water bottles and other trash as we are? Are you outraged by the toxic plastic trash polluting our streams, rivers, and oceans? Want to do something about it? Join 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". 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 Tuesday Oct 30, 4-6pm, we will lead a Trash Day of Action: Battle of the Bottle at Nestle headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, calling on them to take responsibility and
We will march peacefully and legally, and engage and inspire the community 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!
