Another successful day supporting Char-Meck’s Adopt-a-Stream program with a volunteer effort across from the pond at Park Road Park in Charlotte. Advisors Ed Doughty and Jason Dimitriou spent the sunny morning picking up debris and waste (ok, garbage and litter) in and around our selected section LSTC1. We’ve really come to realize the waste created from plastic, and in most all cases, one-use plastic. Cup’s, bottles, plastic grocery bags, straws, take-out containers, etc. Did you know it takes about 400 years for some plastics to decompose? And some never do. Everyone at Epic Capital uses glassware or reusable personal water bottles for drinking water, and we serve our clients Brita-filtered water – not disposable plastic water bottles. A volunteer experience like this is eye-opening and we encourage everyone to give-it-a-go. It’s a worthy cause and stimulates an awareness for the senseless waste we create in our lives.
