Shirley's Coffee Shop Participates in International Coastal Clean up

It was an event and a cause close to the heart of Shirley's Coffee Shop. As one of the earliest champions of the beach clean up activities on the island, the Shirley's group composed of Shirley's management and staff, as well as their family members and friends took to the beaches once again for the International Coastal Clean Up.

At the Sugar Dock heading south site, the Shirley's team joined thousands of environmental warriors/volunteers from the government and private sector.

The two-day event was held September 24 and 25 all over the CNMI (Saipan, Tinian and Rota).

All items collected were counted and segregated using these 6 sections:

Segregation begins

a. Shoreline and Recreational Activities - debris from food, beach-goers, sports/games, festivals, litter from streets/ storm drains, etc.
b. Ocean/Waterway Activities - debris from recreational/commercial fishing and boat/vessel operations.
c. Smoking-Related Activities
d. Dumping Activities
e. Medical/Personal Hygiene
f. Debris Items of Local Concern

It was a day well-spent
