Belinda is keeping Halifax’s shoreline clean

Belinda Wilson, Store Manager at a Real Atlantic Superstore® in Halifax, can’t help but care about the ocean. “Being a daughter of a fisherman, I know firsthand how garbage impacts our oceans,” she says. “And no matter where you are in Nova Scotia, you are no more than an hour away from a shoreline, so when I saw the opportunity to be a part of this initiative that works to keep our shorelines clean, I was in.”
