How long have you been volunteering with NEC?
I have volunteered at the NEC since EcoNews was mimeographed.
What inspired you to volunteer?
At first, I was just inspired by the increasing threats to the environment. Sid Dominitz [EcoNews Editor for about 30 years] and Tim McKay [longtime NEC Executive Director, until his passing in 2006] encouraged me to do beach cleanups.
Words for future volunteers? For coastal cleanups, my advice is to get rid of the causes of beach pollution, starting with plastic. Check out www.5gyres.org.
