BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – Hey Beach-goers, you’ll soon notice colorful hand painted trash cans anchored in the sand in Cocoa Beach.
They aren’t going to be there just for your viewing pleasure… those cans, and their decorators, expect them to be used.
“We’re looking to bring unique awareness to cleaning up our beach,” said “Creative Cans In the Sand” co-founder, and RE/MAX Elite Realtor, Nikki Freeman.
“If the trash cans are beautifully painted, I believe people will start using them,” said Freeman.
Creative Cans In The Sand is being organized to help encourage beach-goers to dispose of their trash responsibility, and with the hopes that more noticeable cans will result in a cleaner, more litter-free beach.
“Folks will be able to design their own trash can and local artists will assist in the painting,” said co-founder Bobby Freeman, also a Realtor with RE/MAX Elite.
“Sponsorships from local businesses is needed, and many have already expressed a great interest.”
Trash cans are positioned near the boardwalks and on the beach but some people don’t use them. So what can be done to bring attention to the cans and help inspire beach goers to use them?
“This will be a fun, and a much needed event for Cocoa Beach,” said Freeman.
“Many thanks to all the local artists, volunteers and business owners for helping to make this event a colorful reality.”
