Earth Day Is Today And In The Hamptons It’s Important

This morning we had beach clean ups in Sagaponack and Montauk. The cleanup in Sagaponack was at Sagg Main Beach with the South Fork Natural History Museum. The clean up in Montauk was by the movie theater and extended all the way to Ditch Plains.

Southampton Town will be holding its annual Great East End Clean-Up (which runs through Sunday) which draws out all of Southampton’s residents to actively clean up the town and beaches all day long and deliver trash to the dump in North Haven.

Earth Day is an important day. It is important because it’s a day for us to reflect on what we can do to help keep our planet or environment healthy, and in the Hamptons, our biggest asset to this community is the beauty of our natural resources. Without them, we wouldn’t be the world class destination that we are.

So keep that all in mind this Earth Day, let’s take it seriously, and I challenge every reader of this blog to actively pick up at least one piece of trash that you see (and that isn’t yours) and throw it out. All too often we are walking, see a piece of trash and don’t pick it up because we thing to ourselves, “Well I didn’t do that, so why should I pick it up?”

Let’s not think that anymore.
