On July 10, 2018, Emery Pharma and CP Lab Safety, teamed up to do a beach cleanup hosted by Golden Gate National Parks Volunteer Program. The program is a collaborative effort of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, National Park Service, and the Presidio Trust. The goal of this beach cleanup was to improve wildlife habitat locally and globally, by working together to efficiently collect debris from Ocean Beach in San Francisco, CA. Beaches are home to diverse wildlife and human pollution is detrimentally affecting the health of their ecosystems. The items discovered during the beach cleanup shocked many of us; flip flops, sweatshirts, aluminum cans, plastic items, cigarette butts, and needles were among some of the items polluting our local beach. By the end of the day, our team had gathered nearly twenty bags of garbage.
The overarching mission at Emery Pharma is to “Save Lives and Help Save the Environment.” We hope to continue to do our part in conserving both marine and human habitats.
