On April 22nd, people all over the world show their support for the environment by celebrating EarthWork Day. This year the BCSEA Vancouver Chapter, SES Consulting and Enernoc teamed up to do a Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

The team collected 210 pieces of foam, 125 pieces of plastic and remarkably 2,353 pieces of glass! Additionally, and certainly more unique, the team collected 7 spark plugs, a flipper and a 3 foot aluminum pencil! Huge congratulations and thanks to the organizers and to all the volunteers that came out to celebrate EarthWork Day!
