DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — Two brothers in Delray Beach are on a mission to clean up our planet.

Beach Keepers Inc. was formed in 2017 when Paul and Andrea Fazzino started picking up trash at the beach. The two have now started picking up trash on public streets, parks, even parking lots.

"This is all I do seven days a week," said Andrea Fazzino.

The brothers said it's a passion for them, and they want to do their part in protecting paradise and keep their city looking nice.

WPTV was with a group of volunteers while they were cleaning up Old School Square in Delray Beach.

Andrea said they always welcome volunteers to help them.

"If we can build from 450 volunteers to 10,000 up to 500,000, we will have our earth looking great in five years," said Fazzino.
