The Ipswich River Watershed Association reported that Masconomet Environmental Club Members participated in the  Saturday, October 26th Fall Riverwide Clean Up. Volunteers collected bags filled with trash that would otherwise have washed into the river and its tributaries. Instead of sinking into the river bottom, the plastic waste collected during the clean up will be used to create Ecobricks for a sustainability project by House Factory.
