Up Country Cleans Up
(East Providence, RI) Up Country Inc, best known for their stylish pet accessories made right here in East Providence, spent the Monday after Earth Day cleaning up the local area. Twenty-five employees spent over 4 hours gathering 20 bags of roadside garbage, filling a dumpster along with 5 containers of recyclables. This is the third Earth Day clean up for Up Country.
“I couldn’t drive up Boyd Avenue one more time and not do something about the mess,” said Alice Nichols, Up Country President.” Everyone was really enthusiastic and I was thrilled with what we accomplished. We even unearthed an old car on the property next to ours.” Up Country moved to their new factory just over four years ago. Many employees live locally and were glad to see some improvement in the neighborhood. “We hope this will inspire people to keep the area clean from now on!” said Alice.
