>This 4th of July Team Marine participated in Santa Monica’s Annual 4th of July Parade. We were asked by Heal the Bay, the Grand Marshall this year, to march alongside them through the streets of downtown Santa Monica until we reached the beach. It was an awesome experience and an honor to get to help lead the parade with Heal the Bay. Heal the Bay’s president, Mark Gold, was there with his whole family and it was great getting a chance to talk to him. Plastic Bag Man made an appearance along with various sea creatures like lobsters and sea jellies. Assemblywoman Julia Brownley also came to support her plastic bag ban and Team Marine got to meet her (some for the second time) and take a picture with her! Overall it was a perfect start to our 4th of July!
