SPODAK DENTAL GROUP SPENDS 43RD ANNIVERSARY AT THEIR NINTH ANNUAL BEACH CLEANUP EVENT

 

Spodak Dental Group celebrated the company’s 43rd Anniversary by giving back to their community and cleaning up the Delray’s beach. The Ninth Annual SDG Beach Cleanup event was held Sunday, June 2 at the Delray Beach South End, South Tower 5, and more than 60 pounds of trash was removed by more than 75 community members.

The amount of waste in the world’s oceans is increasing at a rapid pace, with much of it cluttering the seabed and clogging up the stomachs of sea creatures. For ocean lovers, Spodak Dental Group’s Annual Beach Cleanup event brings an opportunity to ensure Delray’s waterways and oceans stand a fighting chance against increasing numbers of debris and waste.

“The beach cleanup event is not only about cleaning the beach, but also about creating awareness in our community,” said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist. “By partnering with other Earth-conscious local companies, we are able to increase our reach and make a great impact.”

Community Unity: Spodak Dental & Partners’ Beach Cleanup Success

Spodak Dental Group partnered not only with the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, but also other local businesses including Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Delray Beach Water Sports, Caloosa Water Wear, Pizza Rustica, Delivery Dudes and Saltwater Brewery. Together the team was able to collect 120 cigarette butts, 50 bottle caps, 20 plastic bottles, 20 plastic straws and plastic utensils and two yards of fishing line/rope, among other items.

The statistics speak for themselves. More than 1 million plastic bags are used worldwide every minute, with estimates pointing toward 160 million metric tons ending up in the ocean by 2025. This is the ninth event that Spodak Dental Group has hosted and the team is dedicated to cleaning their local beach for many years to come.
