GEARING UP FOR THE
GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP!
In the months of April & May, Keep Rockland Beautiful organizes and energizes over 3,000 volunteers to help clean up neighborhoods, streets, parks, and waterways across Rockland County.
Kevin Lowenwirth (pictured above) is our new Cleanup Coordinator and is spearheading this year’s efforts. He’s standing next to our cleanup supply shed located in the parking lot of New City Bowl.
Registration for the Great American Cleanup will be opening in a few weeks — we are currently working on updating our website. So stay tuned!
If you would like to clean up before April REGISTER HERE and we will have your supplies ready for you. However, please note: as we update our website you may run into some interim technical difficulties in the registration process. In this event, please contact Kevin Lowenwirth and register through him. He can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (845) 708-9164.

2017 EARTH B.E.A.T!
Fun, Hands-on Environmental Education
Earth B.E.A.T. engages students in a day of fun, interactive activities focused on local ecology, waste reduction, water and energy conservation. By participating in these Eco-Stations, students build knowledge about their community and the human-nature connection. They make meaningful connections to class curriculum and the NYS learning standards and are inspired to take simple steps to protect the environment.
“Earth B.E.A.T. provides our students with motivating, relevant, interactive experiences to deepen their understanding and respect for our natural resources, as well as their role in caring for the earth! …students have fun while learning important lessons!“
— Francine Cuccia, Principal, Link Elementary World School

Isn’t it time to stop using plastic bags once and then throwing them away? In fact, do we really need to use them at all? Most plastic bags are used once and then discarded. Yes, really!
So Maria Luisa Whittingham of Nyack is leading the charge to get people to simply pause…and ask:
As a merchant, employee, or volunteer in a retail setting: “Did you bring your own bag today?” If no,”Will you need a bag today?”
As a consumer: “I pledge to forego a bag and bring my own bag when shopping”
Sound like a simple and reasonable idea? Then sign this petition to let the world know…
