Adopt-a-Beach program at Chicago’s Osterman Beach

On Saturday, September 21, 2019,  Hi-Cone employees, friends and family again joined the Alliance for the Great Lakes for its Adopt-a-Beach program at Chicago’s Osterman Beach. The annual Adopt-a-Beach event has been part of Hi-Cone’s service culture for over 25 years.

Hi-Cone is proud to be part of the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection, which provides the only empirical database about animal entanglement. Once again, our efforts show that ring carriers are not a significant cause of litter or animal entrapment issues. But even one ring carrier or piece of plastic is too much, so we continue to work to ‘create a world where plastic need never become waste.’
