Keep Lee County Beautiful and the Tunaskin Beach Keepers Club held their 7th annual beach cleanup Sunday. Over 300 volunteers participated in the Fort Myers Beach event and picked up over 850 pounds of trash and debris.
Each year, Keep Lee County Beautiful (KLCB) engages over 5,000 volunteers in more than 250 community improvement initiatives, to improve the environmental health and natural beauty of the places we call home.
Tunaskin’s Ben Duval said the company was privileged to partner with local restaurants and businesses to make this year’s beach cleanup a huge success. “Thank you to Matanzas on the Bay, Yo Taco, Tuck Away Café, Hooters, Island Fit, J Boogie Custom Rods, MadiWear, and Fish Tale Marina. We were lucy enough to present Keep Lee County Beautiful with a check for $3,000.00. Thank You to all participants and we hope this can inspire more and more people to keep the place we call home clean of all garbage and trash not just on the beach but all over our community.”
“Our partnership with Tunaskin Aquatic Apparel brings people in the community together working towards a positive change and we were able to make an immediate impact in protecting the place we live, work, and play,” said Trish Fancher, Executive Director of Keep Lee County Beautiful.
