Hotel partners with riverkeeper for community cleanup event

Litter is awful for the environment, and it’s an eyesore to boot. 

That’s why Hotel Indigo partnered with the Black Warrior Riverkeeper on Tuesday and hosted a community cleanup day at a popular spot in Tuscaloosa.

About 20 people participated in the event and gathered trash along the River Walk between the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater and River restaurant.

“It is a very popular area for people to exercise, to bring their kids to walk,” said Hotel Indigo’s Taylor Liles. “And we have chosen that area specifically because it is close to us, because we can really cover that area the best.”

Organizers said events like this help a lot, but what’s even more helpful is not littering in the first place.
