We are VERY happy to announce that we we awarded a grant of $2,500 from The Maryland Environmental Trust, with funding from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development!!!! They have added a new Clean Up & Green Up Maryland Grant to the suite of awards available through its Keep Maryland Beautiful program. This new grant was established to help community groups and nonprofit organizations statewide with neighborhood beautification activities that include litter removal, greening activities, community education, and citizen stewardship statewide. The Clean Up & Green Up Maryland Grant is awarded to local groups and nonprofit organizations working to remove litter and engage residents and young people in neighborhood cleaning and greening initiatives. The objectives of the grants are to: encourage a sense of stewardship and personal responsibility for the environment; stimulate a better understanding of environmental issues; help reduce or eliminate a local environmental problem; litter removal; watershed protection; and encourage education about growth management and protection of rural and urban areas and sensitive resources while discouraging sprawl development. HUGE props to KIBCU Communications Director @klimbmntns for her hard work to get us approved! #marylandenvironmentaltrust #keepmarylandbeautiful #kentislandmd #marylandseasternshore #kibcu #cleanuptogreenup βœŒπŸ»πŸ’šπŸŒŽ

Despite the crazy wild winds and cooler temps, our great community came out to clean up the Chesapeake Bay and Hemingway's Beach area here on Kent Island! We just beat the rain, but picked up over 40 buckets of garbage, 80% of which was single-use plastic. #savethebay #chesapeakebay #kentislandmd #community #volunteer #plasticsucks #plastictrash #plasticstraws #plasticmadness #kibcu #kidsareamazing #KIHS #kentislandmd #reduce #reuse #recycle #respect

Our cleanup had an AMAZING turnout this morning with over 40 volunteers of all ages, collecting single-use plastics, styrofoam, cigarettes and more!! In this video you'll see our board members @jonweed1 @klimbmntns and Joe Estrada with volunteers and Interns @delaneymobrien @m.8942 separate the general waste from the plastics to ship to @terracycle where they'll turn them into other products! Approximately 80% of what we collect could have been recycled by its original user! Stop buying and using single-use products! They're killing our ecosystem! Thanks to all the great volunteers for coming out this morning! We couldn't do what we do without each and every one of you! βœŒπŸ»πŸ’šπŸŒŽ #respect #reduce #reuse #recycle #beachcleanup #kibcu #volunteer #KIHS #kentislandmd #volunteer #community #kentislandmd #chesapeakebay #savethebay

Our LIT Intern and KIHS Sophmore @delaneymobrien displaying all single use plastics that could have easily been avoided or at least recycled! We are sending all of today's ridgid plastics @terracycle in NJ so they can turn them into other products! We love That we're not sending all of our collected trash to a landfill! #peace #love #recycle #reduce #reuse #stopusingplastic #singleuseplastics #plasticsucks #hemingways #kentislandmd #KIHS #volunteer #kibcu #beachcleanup βœŒπŸ»πŸ’šπŸŒŽ

Our board members, Joe Estrada and Director of Buzz and Communications Kathleen Simpson @klimbmntns help volunteers with their collected trash at today's Hemingway's Beach Cleanup on the Chesapeake Bay on Maryland's Eastern Shore. They're separating the riding plastics from other trash to send to @terracycle to melt down into pellets, and make new products! #marylandseasternshore #progress #volunteer #kibcu #kentislandmd #hemingways #plasticsucks #singleuseplastics #stopusingplastic

Our Director of Buzz and Communications, @klimbmntns Kathleen Simpson is untangling left behind fishing line from a piece of wood. Some fishermen create makeshift fishing poles with wood and line, then simply leave it behind. Unfortunately, thus is extremely damaging to the aquatic life in our bays, rivers, and oceans as animals become entangled in the line and often die. It's easy....if you decide to fish, fitch your line in a trash can! #fishinglinekillsanimals #hemingways #kentislandmd #kibcu #volunteer #marylandseasternshore #progress #trash

Throwback to 2014 when our little organization was just that...little! And our kiddo was little too😌. 3 years ago we just barely had a website and certainly didn't have the following we do today. We work hard and smart so that in another 3 years we can throw it back again, and celebrate how far we've come! #tbtπŸ’• #change #movingonup #progress #kibcu #marylandseasternshore #kentislandmd #terrapinbeach βœŒπŸ»πŸ’šπŸŒŽ

Don't forget that we have several cleanups scheduled this year at various beaches, parks, etc around town! RSVP to them here on Facebook, share with friends and family, invite them, or just show up!
STUDENTS: We have 9 more cleanups this year...so that means 36 volunteer hours for you to earn if you come to all of them and stay the entire time! Easy, peasy ways to earn your hours😜

No matter how many cleanups we have, there is always trash. Don't let your eyes fool you! Come out and support our cause, and give back to your community! We promise you'll feel great, and we're not too bad either. βœŒπŸ»πŸ’šπŸŒŽ Call, text, or email for more info, if you have questions, or want to join our team! We're here to help you.
