The Canon Clean Earth Crew lends A Hand In The Sand At Jones Beach States Park
Canon U.S.A., Inc., employees, family and friends volunteered their time to help clean up litter and debris at Jones Beach State Park on Saturday, September 15, as part of the 21st Annual International Coastal Cleanup.
“In the spirit of our corporate philosophy of kyosei – all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future – Canon U.S.A. encourages volunteerism and stewardship through the Canon Clean Earth Crew,” said William Reed, senior vice president and general manager, Corporate Communications, Canon U.S.A. “Through various activities, Canon U.S.A. employees demonstrate our commitment to preserve and conserve the planet’s limited resources for future generations.”
Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup is the largest and most successful volunteer event of its kind. Each year, thousands of volunteers from around the globe participate, clearing tons of trash from coastlines, rivers and lakes and recording every piece of trash collected. The data collection allows Ocean Conservancy to compile, analyze and track this data year-by-year and make discoveries about the behaviors that cause the debris. The final information is used to educate the public, business, industry, and government officials about the problem. For more information, visit www.oceanconservancy.org.
This year more than 100 employees, family and friends took part in the Canon Clean Earth Crew event at Jones Beach. In previous years, the Canon Clean Earth Crew has volunteered its time for conservation efforts at various Long Island parks, beaches and nature preserves, including The Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center, Old Bethpage Village Restoration and The Alley Pond Environmental Center.
In addition to the Clean Earth Crew, Canon U.S.A. supports a wide range of environmental education and conservation initiatives, including the Canon Envirothon, one of North America’s largest high school environmental education competitions; the PBS Nature series; and scientific research and educational programs at Yellowstone National Park.
