On August 8th 2010, Team Marine worked with the Plastic Pollution Coalition at the Malibu Farmers Market. 5 Gyres also had a booth there, who educated the community. At the Farmers Market, Team Marine members Aidan, and Kou dressed up in the bottle costumes as a bottle and bottle cap “monster” and educated many Malibu community members on the issues of single use plastics. The team of “monsters” asked people to sign their petition to ban single use plastic bags in Santa Monica, which are already banned in Malibu. By the end of the day, Team Marine got about fifty signatures.
