DON VALLEY RAVINE CLEAN UP

The One Piece A Day team at the Don Valley Ravine clean up event.

APRIL 27 2019

Our amazing OnePieceADay team joined together with dkstudio architects inc. and Don't Mess with the Don for an epic clean up in the Don River Ravines.


The morning started out with a few volunteers gathering around the main gazebo and setting up the central area. Even though it was a cold and windy morning, the small crowd was determined to clean up the ravine. After layering up (I was wearing at least 5 layers!!), we separated into groups of 2-3. Putting on a pair of gloves and grabbing a large burlap bag, I headed out into the woods with my partner - who by the way I had just met!


Quickly and surely, our bags starting filling up one by one, two by two. Then, all of a sudden, garbage bags started piling up one by one, two by two.


As the day progressed, the weather began to warm up and sun started to peek out. More and more families and volunteers joined the event. With these extra hands, the number of bags of litter were growing by the second. People of all ages were digging out buried plastic bags, empty bottles, and old toys. We even found a shopping cart in the mix of garbage!
