Recently, we made an appearance volunteering at a popular beach in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic during one of our Summer 2015 Job Fair tour stops. Within an hour we picked up enough trash (mostly Styrofoam) to fill 28 garbage bags. Yuck!

A garbage pick up is as quick and rewarding way to help Mother Nature and earn Greenheart Club hours, wherever you may be on the planet. Here is all you need:

  1. A littered parcel of land
  2. Garbage bags
  3. A place to dispose of the garbage bags after the clean-up
  4. Closed-toed shoes
  5. Rubber gloves
  6. A great group of people!

Spice up your cleanup with a contest! Our group of Dominican participants, American employers, visa sponsor (CCI Greenheart)  and Summer Work Travel sending agency staff competed to collect the Most Reusable, Most Disgusting, Most International, and Most Attractive pieces of trash. Hershey chocolate bars went to the winners!

Are you inspired to join the Greenheart Club and clean an area near you? Tell us about it!
