As part of its 2014 Take the Pledge campaign, Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful has launched another initiative aimed at motivating citizens, local businesses and community organizations to become environmental stewards.
The Environmental Club at Lanier High School in Sugar Hill was one of five organizations recently honored as a "Great American Cleanup" winner.
On May 17, 60 volunteers gathered on the banks of Bromolow Creek in Duluth to pick up litter and to collect unusual items for use in future art projects at the Hudgens Center for the Arts. The effort -- "Art in Motion - Great Gwinnett Stream Cleanup" -- resulted in the collection of 2,500 pounds of litter.
Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful reminds Gwinnett County citizens, businesses, organizations, schools and civic groups there is still time to take part in the Great American Cleanup Challenge and win one of 10 prizes of $500.
How do you grow jobs and the economy while staying attuned to environmental concerns? That was one of the questions posed by Gov. Nathan Deal during the Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful March 6 Environmental Address at the Gwinnett Convention Center in Duluth.
“If you want jobs to come your way – whether opening a new business or relocating a business – know that they want to be in a county and community that is clean and values its beauty," Deal said according to a press release from Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful.
