MLK Day of Service

Our MLK Day of Service event included volunteers assembling hundreds of monofilament recycling containers. These will be used to hold race swag for Love A Sea Turtle’s 5k Trail Run on March 28 instead of plastic bags.

Monofilament Recycling

Sydney started The “Stow It-Don’t Throw It” Project chapter in Virginia. She’s been busy since attending the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit last year! I caught up with her in Beaufort and she shared updates on her work.

We attached Stow It-Don’t Throw It monofilament recycling containers on our kayaks during River Quest. They were used a lot! Now we’ll dispose of the fishing line properly!

Service Project Video

A group of ECU Honors College students partnered with Love A Sea Turtle for a monofilament recycling service project. Here’s their video recapping the project. “Together, you and me can keep a turtle safe at sea!”

Stow It-Don’t Throw It

Members from the Boys & Girls Club of Pitt County – Grady White Boats/E.R. Lewis Family Unit and local high school students assembled personal size fishing line recycling containers – a Stow It-Don’t Throw It project. I led the volunteers in a presentation of the importance of our upstream downstream connection through marine debris collection. A local racquet club collected empty tennis ball cans and the fishing line containers will be given to participants in an upcoming fishing tournament sponsored by Grady White Boats.
