Cleaning the coast

Three cheers to the volunteers and staff of Liberty Coca-Cola Beverages, members of the nonprofit NYC H2O, and the National Park Service for cleaning up Plumb Beach. Twenty-five company volunteers from the beverage giant’s distribution centers joined more than 100 community volunteers who spent the morning and afternoon removing 1.5 tons of trash from the beach.

“We were thrilled to be part of these local efforts,” said Paul Mulligan, co-owner, Liberty Coca-Cola Beverages. “At Liberty, we are always looking for opportunities to get involved in the communities where our associates work and live, and make those communities a safer, more thriving environment for all.”

“We appreciate Liberty Coca-Cola’s commitment to NYC H2O’s environmental cleanup efforts,” said Matt Malina, director and founder, NYC H20. Special shout-outs to naturalists Clay and Seth Wollen, who volunteered their knowledge about marine life during an on-site ecology lesson, and to local caterer Nigel Roderick for providing such good eats for lunch.
