CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, May 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday June 22nd, The Way to Happiness (TWTH) Association of Tampa Bay will continue its campaign of cleaning up the environment at their adopted mile of the Pinellas Trail.
“We are dedicated to raising the community’s awareness of the harm that litter causes our environment while at the same time leading by example,” said the Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay, Tanja Cranton. “With the recent addition of this beautiful mural along the Pinellas trail, we want to ensure this area is kept pristine for all to enjoy.”
So far this year, TWTH volunteers have done two cleanups on the trail and a total of 20 cleanups throughout various neighborhoods in Clearwater.
Littering is a punishable offense in Florida. Littering from a motor vehicle could add three penalty points on the violator’s driving record. Littering a neighborhood can cause a fine of up to $100 or jail time if litter weighing 15 – 500 pounds is dumped in an area. If litter is more than 500 pounds, it becomes a felony offense with a possible 5-year jail sentence.
TWTH Association Tampa Bay bases its actions on the book by L. Ron Hubbard in which he wrote, “Care of the planet begins in one’s own front yard. It extends through the area one travels to get to school or work. It covers such places as where one picnics or one goes on vacation. The litter which messes up the terrain and water supply, the dead brush which invites fire, these are things one need not contribute to and which, in otherwise idle moments, one can do something about.”
Volunteers will meet at 10:30 am on June 22nd at The Way to Happiness Center, 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater, FL 33755 for the Pinellas Trail cleanup. If you are interested in participating, please call (727) 467-6961.
