Princeton Club of Japan Cleans: Taking Ownership to Deliver a Sustainable Environment (Arakawa Riverbank Cleanup)

May 26, 2019

 

On behalf of the Princeton Club of Japan Organizing Committee, we’d like to thank all the folks who came out on a beautiful Sunday morning to participate in our inaugural #PrincetonCleans community service event. 

As you can see in our group photo, we had a great mix of undergrad and graduate Alums as well as large representation of spouses and offspring. 

Thanks to the meticulous record keeping of the Arakawa Clean Aid support staff, we can report the achievement of 16 bags of burnables, 1 bag of non-burnables, 2 bags of pet bottles, 1 bag of glass, and 2 bags of cans. While we can applaud the effort of this significant amount of trash collected in a bit under an hour, it also serves as a reminder as to why we held this event in the first place- There is a whole lotta garbage out there in need of cleaning.
