The Great Michigan City Green Clean is a grassroots movement, centered on building community, taking care of the Earth and protecting the watershed by picking up litter. Since we began on March 13th, hundreds of caring people have cleaned up over 75 different sites around the city, with hundreds of bags of trash removed from the landscape. Parks, streets, neighborhoods, roads, highways, and shopping centers have been drastically improved and trash that has been an eyesore in our community, damages wetlands, and eventually make its way into our watershed has been intercepted. By working together, we have proven that great things are possible when the community is of one mind! The trash situation all over Michigan City was nothing short of horrendous! We have a great challenge before us and we are working to overcome it with impressive success. What was intended to be a week long initiative has turned into a city-wide movement! We want to extend our heartfelt appreciation to everyone who took a bag or a bucket and picked up some trash. You belong in this effort, and without you, our continued success would not be possible.Our work is far from being over! Please join us in our ongoing effort to make Michigan City litter free. Our goal is to have every piece of litter and debris picked up by Earth Day! We are well on our way but we need your help! You can join the Great Michigan City Green Clean Facebook page for information on how to join or set up a larger clean-up. Or you can just step out for a walk in your own neighborhood and pick up a bucket or two along the way! Every little bit counts and with many hands make light work!
