‘South Jersey Scrub’ Plans to Help Clean 500 lbs of Litter in SJ
With human life, marine life, and the South Jersey area overall being impacted by the pollution in our waters; A mission has been set in place for over the weekend on May 19th in Cumberland and Salem counties, to host the FIRST EVER "South Jersey Scrub."
The site says:
[A scrub is] a strategic, organized cleanup initiative that targets a particular watershed, county, or region... [it's] a way for people to take action together in one or more individual cleanup events over a period of time, for big impact.
Scientist are saying that by 2050, there could be more plastic in our ocean than fish...scary thought. In which case, local organizations here in our area are partnering up with the Delaware Estuary to clean up over 500 pounds of litter to benefit the life here in South Jersey that's being impacted by the pollution and plastic being thrown in our waters.
The city of Bridgeton, as well as the New Jersey Clean Communities, are taking part by providing the clean up materials needed for the project, such as gloves and bags!
