Guam - As islanders we have the privilege of living in paradise making it our duty to preserve its beauty that's why every week we bring to you KUAM Care Force's Think Green initiative promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle.

KUAM radio personality Andy Wheeler said, "Every year the KUAM Care Force and the Think Green project we get together and like to do a cleanup different routes I remember one year we did it in Agat we've done it on several roads and beaches on the island."

We encourage island residents to come down this Saturday to Ypao Beach at the Governor Joseph Memorial Park. "We want everyone to show up around 6:30am and we are going to start the cleanup at about 7 and we are going to work are way from Ypao all the way to Chief Quipuha intersection in Hagatna," he said.

All we ask is that participants bring with them a water bottle, as we will be providing bags, gloves and water. "We are going to have stations along the way to collect the trash and then at the end we going to have a little get together and just thank everyone for coming out and helping keep the island clean," Wheeler added.

It is everyone's responsibility to keep our island clean even if that means picking up the trash others may have left behind. "We have such a beautiful island we live in paradise and its sad that some people don't respect that as much as they should and things do get left on the beaches on the roads and just for the sake of our island and keeping it beautiful we like to get as many people in the community together as well as our staff and just help clean up so we can make the most of our beautiful little island paradise," he said.

We are urging residents who may have some free time that morning to come down and be a part of this effort an effort that is made possible through the support of our corporate sponsors. "We get a lot of support from corporate partners for our Think Green events we would like to thank MBI, which is an affiliate of Jones and Guerrero they are providing bags they are biodegradable trash bags so we want to thank them also Pacific Solar and Photovoltaics it's a great company they always chip in Kloppenberg Enterprises, IP&E and Shell, KUAM we would like to give a special thanks to Market Wholesale and Mr. Rubbishman," he said.

So mark your calendars and honor Earth Week by lending a helping hand.
