Tony Soriano, Regional Sales and Operations Director at Flagship Facility Services, knows what that is like. He has dedicated his time and services to helping clean up California’s coastline for over 15 years. What started as a personal pursuit to clean up his local beach has become a community endeavor with over 24,000 volunteers up and down California’s coastline.
This year Tony helped lead a dedicated team of environmentally focused volunteers at Tower 16 and Flagship was also a local sponsor for the efforts for a cleaner California shore. They may have gotten their hands a little dirty, but volunteers were out there to reduce litter, protect our ocean and raise awareness about litter and plastic pollution.
September 21, 2019 marked the 35th annual California Coastal Cleanup. In total, there were 512 beaches cleaned and 179,574 pounds of trash removed from the California shoreline, and the numbers were in line with or surpassed the 2019 program goals. All trash collected goes into an online database – every cigarette butt, snack wrapper, piece of plastic – and helps form future public policy and business best practices.
