Locations Real Estate Group cleans up Portland's Eastern Prom!

Last Sunday, April 11, a team from Locations Real Estate Group dedicated their morning to cleaning up Portland's Eastern Promenade.

The litter we picked up included takeout containers, lots of masks (disposable and cloth), and seemingly endless plastic wrappers. Our group was joined by Staghorn Tea Company, who generously offered delicious cups of warm tea (in compostable cups!) for refreshment afterwards. Our litter cleanup efforts were led by Locations agent Kate Hodgson, a longtime advocate for cleaning up litter in local communities, reducing plastic use, and bettering the environment. Kate provided litter grabbers that made the task quick and very effective!
