Community cleanup October 9
Good people, good company and a good deed for Mother Earth
Nearly 1.6 million barrels of oil are used every year to produce plastic bottles. Those bottles can take up to 450 years to decompose, according to The Balance. The 18 billion disposable diapers thrown away every year take about 250-500 years to decompose. It is a dirty world out there but it does not have to be. Volunteers are needed to help tidy-up this little corner of the nation.
The Big Sky Community Organization, Big Sky Sustainability Network Organization (SNO) and Republic Services are coming together for the Big Sky Community Litter Cleanup Day on Friday, Oct. 9 from 3-5 p.m. at the BSCO Softball Fields Pavilion.
"We want to make sure to clean up as much as possible before the snow flies!” SNO chairman Josh Treasure said.
Alexis Alloway, Municipal Contract Administrator with Republic Services wrote in an email that it is a perfect opportunity to join neighbors and local community members to help pick up litter around town. Teams will disperse to various locations to clean up and post clean-up food and beverages will be provided. Alloway noted this is a solid way to find good company and better the community.
