NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - One group of environmentally conscious Naples residents spent New Year’s Day cleaning up area beaches.

The Naples Daily News (https://bit.ly/22CTzTK ) reports that members of the local WaterKeeper Alliance chapter donned gloves and used plastic garbage bags to gather miles of beach trash.

The group collected remnants of fireworks, beer cans and bottles, abandoned beach chairs, flip flops coolers and other items.

Evelyn Birdsall of north Naples joined in the cleanup and said it was a great way to start the New Year off by doing something positive.
