Members of the Redlands Community Center Youth volunteers, known
as “Teens Inspiring Others,” conducted their second tobacco
litter cleanup on Monday, Nov 25.
As part of the #freeourbackyard campaign, the volunteers,
partnering with the Common Vision Coalition and the Institute for
Public Strategies, collected cigarette butts and tobacco litter
around Sylvan Park’s picnic area and skate park. Within 40
minutes, the youth volunteers picked up more than 2,167 cigarette
butts, tobacco-related litter and marijuana paraphernalia.
