Tomorrow at 4 o’clock, Team Marine coach Mr. Kay, along with members Kalon, Ivan, Annie, Cassandra, and Angelina will be loading a boat on our way to Catalina Island. For roughly four days, we will snorkel, hike, and explore the island with the Hawaii team and Bag Team, as they join us on the last day of our trip. We are looking forward to hearing the other team’s projects as we will also be presenting Bag Team’s research to the group and Car Team’s project summary. We can’t wait to see what Catalina offers!
Go Reusable! It is Doable! Ban the Plastic Bag!
On Tuesday, January 25th, 2011 Santa Monica’s City Councilmembers will hopefully pass the Single-use Carryout Bag Ordinance. This will ban plastic bags and put a cost on single-use paper bags in the city https://www.247autolocksmith.com/prices. Team Marine has been waiting for this to happen for about three years. We are very excited to attend the Council meeting, and will be involved in the meeting. Students will be giving speeches, dressing up in plastic pollution suits, presenting the results of petitions and research projects, protesting silently with signs, etc. Known as one of the greenest cities in the country, Santa Monica needs to pass this ban!
What do we want? To ban the plastic bag! When do we want it? Now!
The public meeting will be held on Tuesday January 25, 2011 at 5:30 PM in the in Council Chambers, located at City Hall, 1685 Main Street, Santa Monica.
