Today was the Earth Month kick off event hosted by the Wyland Foundation. I was nominated as an earth month hero by Team Marine’s coach, Benjamin Kay. I spoke in front of an audience which was a terrifying experience but in the end everything turned out ok. Earth month Heroes will be recognized in the Wyland Foundation and the KCBS 2/ KCal 9 websites. An awesome program that was brought to my attention during this event was the my water pledge. This pledge is to conserve water, save energy, and reduce pollution. It’s a great program that supports the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act.
Team Marine’s Bag Team competed in 2012’s Quikscience Challenge hosted by Quiksilver and USC. Bag Team worked for over a year to collect data on how a single-use plastic bag ban has been effective in Santa Monica. The project proves that a nationwide bag ban is possible and can make immense positive change in the environment. Check out our project summary!
