Damon Slough in Oakland, CA
Date: May 8th, 2013
Location: Damon Slough, Oakland, CA
Haul: 1,321 lbs
UBB held our first cross-county cleanup with our newest partner- Levi Strauss & Co. on May 8th.
This apparel pioneer shares our commitment to volunteerism and our mission to conserve our world's waterways. On Community Day, Levi Strauss & Co.'s employees and executives from around the world join together for a day of giving back. The Bay Area alone had 32 projects, including a cleanup of the Damon Slough, a wetland that feeds into the San Leandro Bay, with United By Blue.
Together, UBB and 60 Levi Strauss & Co.'s team members removed 1,321 pounds of trash from Damon's Slough, which was named one of the top five most littered waterways in the Bay Area in 2012. Our weird trash collection included a pregnancy test, a shot gun handle, a baby walker, rattan chair, and British Passport.
We'd like to thank our Levi Strauss & Co.'s volunteers, City of Oakland Public Works Agency, and the O.Co Coliseum staff.
