ASEZ WAO volunteers in Washington DC partnered with Anacostia River Keeper for an Anacostia River cleanup. The effort is in line with ASEZ WAO’s Reduce Plastic campaign that’s held worldwide. Volunteers were inspired by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s plan to make the Anacostia a swimmable, fishable body of water. In the end, volunteers collected 135 pounds of plastic bottles, 100 pounds of plastic bags, and 430 pounds of non-plastic waste. In total, volunteers collected 1,100 pounds of trash.
