CVS Caremark colleagues participate in shoreline cleanups across the country
WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Caremark announced its colleagues collected nearly 25,000 lbs. of trash from shorelines across the country in partnership with Ocean Conservancy, an organization that educates and empowers citizens to take action on behalf of the ocean.
The CVS Caremark Shoreline Cleanup, a national environmental employee engagement campaign, provided CVS Caremark colleagues with the opportunity to make a difference in their local communities. The program also raises awareness of the connection between clean waterways and our health and well-being.
The CVS Caremark Shoreline Cleanup, part of the company’s commitment to local communities, hosted five volunteer events nationwide in 2013:
- Crandon Park in Key Biscayne, Fla.;
- Elm Fork Trinity River in Dallas;
- Montrose Beach in Chicago;
- Emerald Hills in San Diego; and
- Colt State Park in Bristol, R.I.
These combined cleanup efforts have resulted in CVS Caremark colleagues collecting more than 34,000 trash items, totaling nearly 25,000 lbs., which equates to 11 tons.
"The CVS Caremark Shoreline Cleanups provided colleagues an engaging, rewarding volunteer experience, while at the same time making a real difference in our local communities," stated Eileen Howard Boone, SVP corporate communications and community relations at CVS Caremark. "Like many of our CSR initiatives, this program closely aligns with our purpose of helping people on their path to better health — with the help of Ocean Conservancy, we were able to raise awareness of how clean waterways directly impact our health and well-being."
Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup is the largest volunteer effort for the ocean, bringing out volunteers from around the world to remove millions of pounds of trash and debris from beaches, lakes and waterways. Last year, volunteers collected more than 10 million lbs. of trash, marking the second highest total items reported in the cleanup’s 27-year history. Cigarettes, food packaging and plastic bottles top the list of collected trash, totaling the weight of 10 Boeing 747 jumbo jets.
