Love Your Lake Oakville Day 3

Oakville Day 3

Today was a great day in Oakville! We love spending the day at the lake when it's hot and sunny even if we're there to pick up litter. It was nice to see so many people out enjoying Lake Ontario. When I was out on the pier at Lakeside Park I overheard a little girl as her mom why she couldn't swim in the water and her mom said because there's too much garbage and pollution in the water. It's sad but completely true. I looked over the railing of the pier and there were random plastic items floating in among big blobs of algae. Although we've picked up thousands of pieces of litter through this project there is still a long way to go before Lake Ontario becomes a clean, pristine lake. PLEASE do your part by picking up litter when you see it, making sure your garbage doesn't become litter, and teaching our children how important it is to protect our planet.


If you pick up some litter while you're out and about enjoying the wonderful waterfront post a picture with the hashtag #LoveYourLake so we can see all the good deeds you amazing human beings are doing!
