Pepco “Green Team” Gets Dirty, Cleaning Up The Anacostia River!

Last Saturday, April 9, Pepco’s “Green Team,” led by Pepco Holdings, Inc. CEO Joe Rigby, did their part to help clean up the Anacostia River.  More than 60 Pepco volunteers, including field personnel, executives, supporting employees, and their families demonstrated the company’s commitment to the community and environment in this annual initiative.

Joined by over 100 other volunteers, Pepco representatives operated along the shoreline (on foot and in hip waders) and in the river (in canoes and kayaks) to retrieve a variety of litter.  That litter was then sorted by type; garbage and recyclables.

By the end of the day, volunteers filled two industrial size, 40 yard containers with trash and recyclable materials.  That’s a lot of garbage!  The top three oddest types were…

  1. Tiles
  2.  Gloves
  3. Athletic Balls (baseballs, basketballs, footballs, soccer balls)

  1. Never let anyone stop you from imagining a clean environment.

    Health is a result of environmental signals to your DNA.

    Every time you make a good choice against litter, positive chemical reactions happen instantly in your body & brain that make you more

    healthy and alive.

    In other words… Picking Up Litter = Free Drugs created by your brain.

    Future generations will not tolerate litter.
