Sustainable Practices to Hold 2nd Annual All-Cape Beach Cleanup

September 16th - support received from national grant

Brewster, MA - Sustainable Practices will host its second annual All-Cape Beach Cleanup on Saturday September 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The grassroots nonprofit received a $1,500 grant from the National Environmental Education Fund to support the event. It will be held in partnership with COASTSWEEP, the statewide beach cleanup effort. In addition, Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters and By-the-Bay Designs are sponsoring clean-up efforts in Brewster, while town organizations and recycling committees are partnering with Sustainable Practices in several other towns.

"This year's event builds on our first All-Cape Cleanup and we are excited to have the level of interest, participation, and sponsorship we have already received. The success of this event is in the community building and the coming together of community members across the Cape to meet and work together to steward our environmental commons," said Madhavi Venkatesan, executive director of Sustainable Practices.
