Car Team’s Overview video has finally been completed! This video gives a short summary of what the past few weeks have been like for the team. We have been active in the community from teaching students at Lincoln and JAMS to expanding our knowledge of the electric car conversion process.
The First Flush is an annual event for Team Marine, each year the amount of plastic on the beach is shocking; today was no different. After the first heavy rainfall hit the Los Angeles area this morning and garbage from all over the city was shuttled to the ocean shore, the team ventured to the Pico storm drain to see the damage done and start cleaning up.
Hey all, We are having another plastic bag march in order to have city counsel speed up its banning of the bags because soon it will be a year when they said they would. It will be a march all around the city and if you see us be sure to honk your horn!!!
Hey everybody Team Marine 3 will be at the Youth Enviornmental Convention. We will have a booth that will be operated by two of us at all times. It would be great if all of our supporters showed up and got involved. Thanks for reading and Stay Green!!!
CITYWIDE The countdown has begun for Santa Monica eateries to begin phasing out their inventory of plastic and Styrofoam containers, environmental demons that will be banished under a new municipal code that takes effect in more than a week. In January 2007, the City Council passed an ordinance that would prohibit the use of expanded polystyrene (Styrofoam) and non-recyclable plastic to-go containers from restaurants and City Hall-managed facilities. While the latter category was forced into compliance last February, restaurants were given a year to make the switch.
Members of the Santa Monica High School student clubs ‘Team Marine’ and ‘Heal the Bay’ take to the wet streets Thursday afternoon to raise awareness for the environmental dangers posed by plastic bags. The march coincided with the first ‘Day Without a Bag’ event throughout Los Angeles County. Government officials hope shoppers would make a switch to reusable bags.
