On Saturday, November 16th hundreds of Greenwich teenagers and parents joined in helping the "Living Like Luke" beach cleanup at Tod's Point.
The GHS Environmental Action Club organized the event for Luke Meyers, a 15 year old Greenwich High student who is passionate about the environment and has been battling some very serious medical circumstances.
Luke is an inspiring young activist who wants to (in his own words), "make changes in our community that not only benefit the environment, but through this, benefit ourselves and all of those around us."
The goal of the beach clean up was to share Luke’s vision and fill the beach with volunteers willing to spend a couple hours cleaning a space that is beloved by the Greenwich community.
The turnout was absolutely inspiring and resulted in a notable environmental impact on the beach; while also bringing an amazing group of local residents together to pool their time and efforts towards a very worthy cause! But don't take our word for it - have a look at some images from the event!
