Mannington organizes a litter cleanup

Home News Mannington organizes a litter cleanup

Salem, NJ —Mannington Mills, in cooperation with Ocean Conservancy and New Jersey Clean Communities, did its part to clean up the local environment.  The “Green Team Recyclers,” a group of Mannington associates who raise environmental awareness through events and education, spent a portion of their day on Friday, October 5th, cleaning up litter and trash left by fishermen and motorists around the entrance to Mannington Mills.

The cleanup was held in conjunction with the Ocean Conservancy and NJ Clean Communities’ annual “International Coastal Cleanup” events, which attract over half a million volunteers from more than 100 countries worldwide.  It’s one of the largest volunteer efforts in the world, and the biggest that focuses on waterway and ocean health.

“By keeping valuable ecological assets free of litter we can help maintain the cleanliness of tidal inland waterways, which has a direct impact on regional water and coastal quality,” said Dave Kitts, vice president, environment, at Mannington Mills.  “It’s important for us as good corporate citizens and residents of this community to take part in keeping our landscape clean. We picked up and disposed/recycled over 50 bags of debris – a startling amount in this day and age.”
