Reed to Announce Project to Address Marine Debris on Aquidneck Island

12/07/2018 — 

Senator Reed helped announce the start of a new, two-year project led by environmental non-profit Clean Ocean Access and funded through a grant from pollution-reduction organization 11th Hour Racing entitled “Healthy Soils Healthy Seas RI,” which will address the growing problem of marine debris by advocating for increased composting on Aquidneck Island.  Clean Ocean Access hopes the project will promote a behavioral change in Rhode Islanders by encouraging them to think more about environmentally-friendly trash removal.  The project will collaborate with local organizations Rhodeside Revival, the Compost Plant, and Aquidneck Community Table.
