PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – On Earth Day, Local 10 News launched a new initiative all about saving our environment in South Florida.

Titled “Don’t Trash Our Treasure” it will feature weekly stories from anchor Louis Aguirre plus other content. Louis has spent years fighting this cause, and now he will do it publicly in an ongoing, stationwide campaign.

“We know it’s our job as journalists to be objective — but on this issue, we are taking sides and we are taking a stand,” Aguirre said. “Our very future is at stake. Join me in this fight to keep our community pristine. Join me in this effort. Don’t trash our treasure.”

Louis’ weekly segments run Wednesdays in the 5:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
