Helpful Definition for: Community & Civic Organizations

Arlington has one or more community and civic organizations. A community is a group of people who live close to each other, and often have the same civic concerns about the area. Thus, such organizations are created, set up and run by the residents of the community. The group is formed to look after larger self-interests. These can be either local in origin, or they can be chapters of a national organization. There are many training and support organizations for national coalitions now, which are independently governed at the local level. Some examples include ACORN, PICO National Network, Direct Action and Research Training Center etc. These help bring in extra resources, and regularize the working of such organizations. A civic organization, somewhat similarly, is a formalized grouping of volunteers who help improve the neighborhood. They can have a variety of specific causes that they focus on. One or more such organizations may be present here, such as one for strays, scouts, cultivation of fine arts, cleanliness watch, and so on. The idea is to give a voice to the community, so that they can influence and direct local leaders to solve their problems and further their causes.

The Threat of Plastic on the Environment Evolves into “Microplastics”
Chris Boyle NEW YORK - As if the danger that discarded, non-biodegradable plastics pose to the environment aren’t enough, a new breed is making its presence felt; a dangerous evolution known as “Microplastics.” Microplastics are not a specific kind of plastic, but rather any type of plastic fragment that is less than five millimeters in length; they enter natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to, cosmetics, clothing, and industrial processes. Some Microplastics enter the environment directly as a result of various sour...
