Break Free from Fossil Fuels March

By Amanda Samimi

On Saturday, May 14, thousands of Eco advocates convened at Los Angeles City Hall to march against fossil fuels. The “Break Free from Fossil Fuels” march consisted of speeches from both people affected by the hazardous consequences of oil drilling in their communities and ordinary advocates of climate action. There were also musical performances in both Spanish and English. There were hundreds of posters and signs cleverly supporting Los Angeles’s divestment from fossil fuels. Amanda and Mr. Kay held up signs that stated “Kill the Drill” and “Renewable is Doable”. At 3pm hundreds of renewable energy supporters walked the streets of downtown LA to send a message to elected officials such as Eric Garcetti and Jerry Brown that now is the time to break the chains of fossil fuel dependency.

As you may know, our amazing mentor, Mr. Benjamin Kay loves to incorporate service learning events into his curriculum so that his students can learn more about Marine Biology and Environmental Science through movies, fairs, beach cleanups, and simply getting out into the environment to apply their knowledge to the real world. On Wednesday April 29th, 2015 our  TM President Kimberly Fuentes accompanied his college students and high school student to the amazing movie “Revolution” directed by Rob Stewart and to our surprise there was also a special appearance by the one and only Rob Stewart after the movie for a Q&A session although everyone was too in awe by the movie to even process what we just watched (yes, it was that good). It did an amazing job on covering all of the current environmental issues that TM advocates for such as overfishing, ocean acidification, climate change, overpopulation, air quality, the excessive burning of fossil fuels, and politicians’ inability to compromise on these issues due to their conflicting interests. A great introduction film for all of you out there reading this that want to familiarize and educate yourself with what is happening in your world. We can not count on our government to educate us about the problems with it because they’re content with us being ignorant. That allows them to do whatever they want, but we are in charge of changing the world and starting the Revolution as we always do in time of crisis. So on that note, watch the movie yourself and share it with friends by going to

Putting a bear in a plastic bag? Thats a violation of the Endangered Species Act! The school is already a place where plastic expo markers thrive as an invasive species, and now the plastic  has been introduced in an alternative form: plastic wrap. This vile deleterious polyethelne product has infultrated the campus premusis and threatens all forms of wildlife.  The last of these fluffy bears can be saved, if measures towards eliminating the plastic products are increased.

Emerald Planet



On Sunday, October 12th Team Marine members Brian Samimi and Kimberly Fuentes represented us on Emerald Planet, a weekly television program that is broadcast and distributed via Channel 10 TV in Fairfax, Virginia USA. We were so honored to be featured on their TV show via skype to reflect once more on the effects that the youth can have on public policy regarding our advocacy work that we have done over the past 8 years to ban the single use plastic bag in the state of California. It was great to see a familiar face (even though we could not exactly see her), Linda Schade, who a few years back came to Santa Monica High School to film a documentary,”Young Voices for the Planet”. We recounted how seeing that documentary as the present Team Marine sets a high standard and leaves a sense of awe to our predecessors and all that they accomplished. It is truly inspiring what they accomplished and we strive to reach that level and surpass it as well.

Alt Car Expo

20140920_143848 (2)
On Saturday September 20th , Team Marine attended the Alternative Car Exposition, located at the Santa Monica Civic Center, for the second time with Volts Wattson. A couple of our most dedicated members went on Friday and spent the whole day eco-educating members of our community. We got to showcase our improved car, and had a booth space right next to Volkswagen! Thanks to Tiffany Paige for featuring us in a video from our previous year at Alt Car. Alt Car was all about alternative and sustainable sources of energy. Many different car manufactures showcased their newest models, and some offered test drives. Additionally there were electric bikes and scooters that were available to test drive. We need to decrease our dependence on oil; carbon emissions come out of the tailpipes of gas powered cars and thin the ozone layer that protects us from harmful rays of the sun.


California Bag Ban Passed!

If you haven’t heard already, we have just had a HUGE environmental win on August 29th, 2014 with Senate Bill 270. After eight long hardworking years of Team Marine student involvement, both the California Senate and Assembly have passed a STATE plastic bag ban with a speedy signature from Gov. Jerry Brown expected to follow. We aided efforts with award winning scientific researchtestified numerous times in city halls across the county;  marched six times through city streets; created multiple PSA videos and documented six years of storm drain runoff (first flush); We also did eco-artwork;  lobbied three times at the state capitol buildingcalled and wrote our representatives!

Not to mention we leveraged every kind of multimedia including (but not limited to) TVnewspapersmagazinesblogs,radiopodcasts, and books. We collaborated with more than a dozen NGO’s and academic institutions; educated countless audiences with lesson plansspeeches, and booth presentationsTweeted, Instagrammed, Face Booked , and blogged continuously on our website approaching 1 million page views. After all of this we finally won!

Special thanks to the entire Clean Seas Coalition, Leslie Tamminen, and all who contributed to this multi-year effort. Here’s to progress and youth making a difference!

Check out what Team Marine did to help make this possible below:

Keystone XL Pipeline Rally


On Monday, the 3rd of February, over 80 eco-minded persons protested against the construction of the XL keystone pipeline in a rally organized by the NRDC. We, Team Marine, made and brought signs to this protest, which was held at the intersection of Ocean Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, so that passing pedestrians, bikers and drivers would notice it. This event’s aim was to raise awareness about the harmful effects of the pipeline. That project would make the USA dependant upon an extremely carbon-intensive energy; the more carbon, the more CO2 in the atmosphere and therefore more global warming. Furthermore, it would run through the multiple natural habitat and would therefore disturb both wild plants and animals. Lastly, there always is the high chance of a spill that would threaten of poisoning not only wildlife but also crops and water supplies. All in all, the rally went quite well and we hope that this noxious program will not be implemented. Thanks to Roy Persinko for taking pictures of us at the rally!

Second Flush 2013

IMG_1174_Hannah's 2nd flush photo

Though we have already blogged about the famous First Flush, this year’s Second Flush proved to be more devastating. On November 21st, there was continuous rain, which caused copious amounts of trash in the Pico-Kenter Storm Drain to rapidly distribute onto the Santa Monica beach. The Second Flush resulted in a plethora of plastics and trash (waste that the First Flush didn’t push) spewing out onto the beach. Team Marine and coach Benjamin Kay rushed to the beach at midnight to catch the footage of the disgusting scene. Mr. Kay’s video of the Second Flush was picked up by the NRDC, Santa Monica Mirror, Santa Monica Daily Press, and various other media outlets. We’d especially like to thank Serena Ingre and Leila Monroe for their reports on the Second Flush. Check out the press received below.
