Sustainability Saturday: Plastic Pollution & the Riverkeeper Trash Attack

by Susan Hellauer

Pratima Rosen grimaces at another unappealing discovery among the bottles, coffee cups, waterlogged diapers, shredded clothing, tangles of fishing line, metal scraps, furniture, congealed mystery globs and, above all, every size and kind of Plastic, plastic, plastic.

Students in the Nyack High School’s AP Environmental Studies class picked their way along the rocky bay shore at Haverstraw’s Bowline Park last weekend, wielding grabbers and trash bags provided by Keep Rockland Beautiful, working hand-in-rubber-glove with Riverkeeper on the environmental group’s fifth annual “Riverkeeper Sweep” of the Hudson shoreline.

Sustainable Saturdays, a weekly feature that focuses on conservation, sustainability, recycling and healthy living, is sponsored by Green Meadow Waldorf School, Maria Luisa Boutique, O'D's Tavern and Strawtown Studio.
