Beach Clean-Ups Remove 180 Pounds of Trash

Volunteers at Kemil Beach in Beverly Shores, Ind. participate in an Adopt-a-Beach Clean-up event.

Meijer team members joined forces recently to rid beaches of plastic and garbage in three states.

In conjunction with International Coastal Cleanup and the Alliance for the Great Lakes, Meijer sponsored three September Adopt-a-Beach clean-up events at Grand Haven State Park in Grand Haven, Mich., Kemil Beach in Beverly Shores, Ind., and Mentor Headlands Beach in Mentor, Ohio.

In all, 191 volunteers picked up 180 pounds of trash from the Lake Michigan and Lake Erie shorelines.
