Chamber member, Spectrum Concierge, a home watch and concierge service, has partnered with Fill-A-Bag and received approval from the City of Naples to install a beach clean-up station at Lowdermilk Beach.
What exactly is Fill-A-Bag?
Fill-A-Bag organization was born after winning the Miami Public Space challenge in 2018. Three Key Biscayne residents designed #FillABag stations to empower people to turn daily walks into meaningful beach cleanups.
The whitewashed 6’ post has 4 cobalt blue hooks and provides beachgoers with on-demand reusable bags and repurposed buckets to fill with trash during their strolls. These stations are strategically installed near trash and recycling bins, where collected trash may be responsibly discarded.
Although the initiative was born and raised in Key Biscayne, Fill-A-Bag Stations have been activated throughout Florida’s surrounding coastlines. There are currently over 30 Fill-A-Bag Stations and the first location on Florida’s west coast was activated earlier this year at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park. The location at Lowdermilk Beach Park is the first in the city of Naples, with hopefully more following shortly after.
"As home watch and concierge professionals, our job is to ensure our client's homes are looking their best. We wanted to take that same approach with this Fill-A-Bag project and to leave the beaches better than we found them." - Robert Peia, Marketing Manager.
