Three Duluth businesses got together on Sunday to clean up Keene Creek.

Loll Designs teamed up with Bent Paddle Brewing Co. and Involta on the project. About 20 people from the three companies picked up trash along the creek, planting trees along the way.

Heather Blish, customer service manager for Loll Designs, said they've been holding a tree planting annually for seven years. This is the first year they've incorporated the creek cleanup, and also the first time they've invited their friends.

"All three companies are invested in supporting their community and committed to sustainability," Blish said. "So it's just a good day of environmental stewardship, and nice for all three companies to come together."
