A few weeks ago I paddled with Doug, ACK San Marcos Store Manager, on the lower portion of the Guadalupe River here in central Texas. Despite the abnormally low water level, the amount of trash and litter that has accumulated just downstream of New Braunfels is flat out hideous. It wasn’t long before we both agreed it was time we found a way to do our part in trying to keep our waters cleaner not only on the Guadalupe River, but everywhere. After putting some thought into this I contacted WORD (Water Oriented Recreation District of Comal County), an organization that was founded to regularly clean up rivers and lakes. WORD graciously provided us with mesh trash bags to give out (free of charge) to ACK customers who rent a kayak from us.
ACK is proud to do our part in keeping our waters clean and we always encourage our customers to do the same so that future generations of paddlers will be able to enjoy the same healthy waters and fisheries we have today. Hopefully our efforts will encourage other water enthusiast to be more responsible with their trash. Remember the old saying “Take out more than what you brought in”.
Come on by to our San Marcos store, rent a yak and get a free bag!
