Don't Be Trashy: Plastic Pickup Picnic This Saturday in Amarillo


Folks, the trash is getting OUT OF HAND, so thankfully folks like Blake Mendez of Net Impact Amarillo are trying to come up with a solution. Stop by the group's Plastic Pickup Picnic this Saturday, June 29th in the afternoon from 11a to 3p CT in Amarillo at the MediPark (between Wallace and Coulter, near SW 9th) to meet with earth-conscious citizens from your community.  

It's a picnic so you can enjoy Taco Villa (for the first 40 attendees...so get there early, taco grubbers!). Plus, lots of kids activities, picnic hangout area, and educational workshops. (Don't forget sunscreen, bug spray, hats, sunglasses,  and water!) Learn about how we can all pitch in and make a difference in the amount of waste we produce, the serious threat of microplastics, and how waste can be repurposed into a functional component of  our infrastructure and/or agricultural projects. "We want to start making this a dialogue with the city," Blake says. "It needs to be easy for everyday consumers, so we can all reduce the waste we generate."

Spread the word, folks! This is important. Find out how you can be a part of the solution, or just come and learn more about the group. To get in touch with Blake, try his email or call him at 512.986.2530.
