About Luke Meyers
Luke was a dedicated environmental advocate who lost his battle with cancer in 2019.
A Greenwich High School student, Luke was a board member of the GHS Environmental Action Club and a Bruce Museum Seaside Center volunteer.
Luke dedicated his spare time to the improvement of the environment.
Luke was an aspiring young activist who wanted to "make changes in our community that not only benefit the environment, but through this, benefit ourselves and all of those around us."
Marine debris, particularly plastics, is not only an aesthetic issue affecting the beauty of Greenwich shorelines; it threatens our economy, our wildlife and our food supply.
Cleanups - the last line of defense - require a community effort, and Greenwich Green & Clean, Skip the Straw Greenwich and their partner organizations invite Greenwich residents to be the solution to plastic pollution.
Luke’s courage and commitment not only inspired the first beach clean up, but also spurred multiple clean up projects worldwide and motivated hundreds to make personal pledges to help the environment. Luke was an inspiration to all who knew him, and he is remembered for his immeasurable kindness, his remarkable creativity, his passion for learning, and his determination to effect positive change in the world. Luke's spirit and boundless energy will be with us at Greenwich Point on April 24th and always.
