NEW THIS YEAR: WATER BOTTLES

In 2015, Xstream Cleanup volunteers will receive BPA-free water bottles instead of event-themed T-shirts. Says event chair Curtis Lundy, “by providing reusable water bottles, we’re making a small but deliberate change. Our goal is to keep our hard-working volunteers hydrated without using cases of bottled water, which generate unnecessary trash. We also want to provide a meaningful token of gratitude. Ideally, each time our volunteers sip from an Xstream Cleanup water bottle, they will make the connection between the work they do and the quality of the water in our community. That’s what this event is all about.”
