1Thing Summer Sustainability Initiative: Entercom Chicago Helps Clean Chicago River

July 31, 2018 - 11:00 am

CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Staff from Entercom Chicago partnered with the Friends of the Chicago River to cleanup the river as part of the 1Thing summer sustainability initiative.

Both on- and off-air employees from WBBM Newsradio, 670 The Score, B96, US99, XRT, and Jams volunteered on two Wednesdays in July to cleanup garbage in the Chicago River either on land or by canoe. 

On top of cleaning up the river, staff was given a tour and taught how the river works by Friends of the Chicago River.

You can volunteer too and join the ranks of the Chicago River Eco-Warriors (CREW). Learn more about it here: Friends of the Chicago River
