DELRAY BEACH, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — Spodak Dental Group and the Surfrider Foundation Palm Beach Chapter partnered for the Eighth Annual SDG Beach Cleanup and cleaned more than 140 pounds of trash from Delray’s beach. The event was held Sunday, June 24 at the Delray Beach South End, South Tower 5, and more than 55 community members joined forces to ensure a safe and clean beach.
The amount of waste in the world’s oceans is increasing at a rapid pace, with much of it cluttering the seabed and clogging up the stomachs of sea creatures. For ocean lovers, Spodak Dental Group’s Annual Beach Cleanup event brings an opportunity to ensure Delray’s waterways and oceans stand a fighting chance against increasing numbers of debris and waste.
“The beach cleanup is all about awareness, and we’re proud to be creating that in our community,” said Dr. Craig Spodak, owner and general dentist. “There is so much opportunity to be an environmental steward in our community, and to encourage local businesses and community members to do so as well, and it’s great because we all benefit from a clean beach.”
Spodak Dental Group partnered not only with the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, but also other local businesses including Delray Beach Water Sports, Caloosa Water Wear, Pizza Rustica and Saltwater Brewery. Together the teams were able to collect cigarette butts, single-use plastic bags, paper and plastic cups, plastic cartons, and more.
The statistics speak for themselves. More than 1 million plastic bags are used worldwide every minute, with estimates pointing toward 160 million metric tons ending up in the ocean by 2025. This is the eighth event that Spodak Dental Group has hosted and the team is dedicated to cleaning their local beach for many years to come.
