Schuylkill river cleanup

Schuylkill river cleanup

May 22, 2019

Philadelphia | Pennsylvania  

Date
May 18th, 2019

Haul:
9,251 lbs.

On Saturday May 18th, 2019, United By Blue, Bartram's GardenPhiladelphia Water Dept., Aqua Vida and Partnership for the Delaware Estuary celebrated 10 years of cleanups at Bartram's Garden along the Schuylkill River. This was our 34th cleanup at this site and our second largest weight haul. This cleanup set the bar for the largest volunteer turnout with 313 guests coming to clean the park and surrounding area.

With so much help, volunteers spread out to not only the river banks but with help from Aqua Vida and the Philadelphia Canoe Club, paddle-boarders and kayakers went out onto the water to capture floatable items passing by. The entrance to the park was cleared of debris and nearby storm drains were marked to bring awareness of the journey plastic takes to the water. 

In an effort to lower the impact of these cleanups, we debuted our new reusable mesh trash bags. This was our first event with the new bags, that were then emptied into larger sacks donated by Yards Brewing for disposal. 

 Following the cleanup, volunteers enjoyed mac & cheese, salad and cookies generously provided by Cabot Cheese and tea by Topos Tea. Games included our "guess the weight" and "weird trash competition," where a babydoll took the "weirdest" prize. We also numbered our volunteer water-bottle's for a raffle of a year supply of Cabot cheese, a $200 United By Blue gift-card and a Philadelphia Canoe Club gift-card.

Join us this back in Philadelphia this fall for our next cleanup!
