For the past three months, Team Marine, along with Mr. Kay’s Marine Biology class, has been collecting thousands of redeemable beverage containers at Santa Monica High School. This past Wednesday, October 16, 2013, Team Marine organized a sorting event of over 8,000 containers. In all there were: 6,087 plastic #1 bottles, 193 plastic #2 bottles, 1,378 aluminum bottles, and 493 glass containers.  Through this event, we have raised about $455. This equates to over 74 LifeStraws! Thanks to the City of Santa Monica and especially Rafael and Adam Holt from the Allan Company for picking up these recyclables.
