Starting in 2008, Good Sheet Company staff have taken a field day each year and gone out to plant trees.
This year, we were particularly excited to not only team up with local business Bent Paddle Brewing and Involta but also to focus on a green space in our own backyard: Keene Creek. On June 1 a total of 24 volunteers spent almost four hours cleaning up 900 pounds (that’s right!) of garbage. We found shopping carts, a highchair, a sink and much more waste that certainly did not belong on the banks of a creek. A total of 20 trees were also planted and fenced.
We’d like to thank the city of Duluth for its imperative role in this year’s event by providing the tools for cleanup and planting. The city also coordinated the pick-up of all the garbage collected. All that made the planning of this event much easier for us, so thanks city!
And – of course we have to give a shout out to Bent Paddle Brewing for supplying the ever-so-tasty beverages after all the work was done.
We’re looking forward to next year’s event already … because we give a Sheet.
