Citizens Against Litter

"Paddle Without Pollution" event this weekend

Paddle Without Pollution, a newly formed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of waterways in Pennsylvania, announced today that its first clean-up event will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2011. Approximately 40 to 60 volunteer kayakers and canoeists will paddle the shorelines of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers within the city limits of Pittsburgh, picking up litter as they make their way towards Point State Park.

Paddle Without Pollution uses non-motorized boats almost exclusively, so it can operate with very little or no impact to the environment, using volunteers of nearly any paddling skill level to get into shallow areas that many boats cannot and areas that land-based cleanup crews cannot reach. Litter not only reflects badly on the area, but also can pose a threat to human health, wildlife, and the health of the local economy. The goal for the September 24th clean-up is to remove trash and other debris from nearly 26 miles of shoreline.

Visit the Paddle Without Pollution website for more information or to register for the clean-up.
