Binnie’s Young Professional (YP) Group participated in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on September 11th, 2021 at Creekside Park. This was their first-ever in-person event in over 18 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cleanup was located North of Science World and started with a welcoming display of Timbits, pizza, and beverages. Volunteers were also given Binnie tumblers and caps for participating.
In total, the clean-up came in at about two hours of clean-up, with a total of 14 YP volunteers who were split up into two groups, North and South of Science World. The City of Vancouver provided the cleanup materials that were used, and YPs collected several large bags of trash. The event was followed by some bonding and mingling amongst the Young Professionals (with provincial COVID-19 restrictions in mind).
