CARE for the Cape & Islands to Host Third Summit on Plastic Pollution and Litter

CARE in partnership with Center for Coastal Studies and Cape Cod Anti-Litter Coalition will host their third Summit: CARE about a Clean Cape & Islands Summit, Protecting Our Environment from Plastic Pollution and Litter. It will be held Tuesday, November 12, at the Cape & Islands Realtors Association Conference Center, West Yarmouth, 8:30AM-12:30PM. The event is by invitation.

The purpose of this gathering will be to further the priorities established during previous summits through increased engagement within the five working groups. The attendees will also work to expand the Take Care Cape Cod environmental stewardship messaging campaign, identified as a top priority at the first Summit. The Take Care campaign was adapted in order for Cape & Island businesses and organizations to share a cohesive message of environmental caretaking across the region.

The Summit will kick off with a panel discussion by State Representative Randy Hunt, Major Peter Monteiro, Barnstable Co. Sheriff’s Office and Thomas Cahir, Administrator, Cape Cod RTA/Cape FLYER on current legislation. The panelists will help to identify opportunities for collaboration to assist in litter reduction efforts and learn how the Take Care message is being used in such efforts.
