Community extends beyond the borders of our towns and cities to the natural world that surrounds and supports us. Protecting our environment means protecting our world, and all the people in it.
Our team partnered with Rugged Coast Research Society and headed out to the West Coast of Vancouver Island to help rid the beaches of waste. In this remote area, with no road access and seemingly untouched by people, the fingerprints of humanity were everywhere. Debris from sunken shipping containers and plastics of all varieties were found littered across a shoreline that at first glance seemed pristine – but on closer examination revealed eye-opening quantities of waste wreaking havoc on our ecosystem.
