Rob Bond and Chris Dacy heading up the Scrub n Grub beach cleanup sponsored by Divers Direct Key West.
A few weekends ago we took part in the Diver’s Direct Key West beach cleanup, called the “Scrub n Grub.”
This event was headed up by our very own Rob Bond, and to help with promotion of the event and to provide a good cause with some photos to commemorate it, Karrie spent the morning shooting candids on Smathers Beach while the crew
of volunteers picked up random articles of trash, clothing, bottles, cans, bags, and even a sleeping bag, some aluminum trim, and other objects harmful to the wildlife and the environment on the island. A special thanks to Diver’s Direct for their efforts in picking up over 300 pounds of garbage from the beaches of Key West, another thanks to all the sponsors for their donations of prizes for the top cleaner-uppers, and a thanks to Karrie Porter Photography for their beach photography services.
