Blogger Beach Cleanup

Join the Blogger Beach Cleanup and clean the beach for 20 minutes on the International Day of Climate Action with Siel of green LA girl and Sara Bayles of The Daily Ocean!
Then mingle and mix with like-minded green Angelenos over drinks and
yummies while plotting out a plan for our sustainable future.

When: October 24, 2009. Meet at 4 pm; cleanup begins 4:20 pm; more fun ensues 4:40 until ?
Where: Santa Monica Beach at Ocean Park, between lifeguard stations 26 and 27. (map and green travel directions)

All you need to do is show up, ready to pick up trash. You’ll clean
the beach — but only for 20 minutes (why only 20 minutes? Learn more
about The Daily Ocean’s project).

After that, you’ll hear very brief invitations from local nonprofits
for the next event that lets YOU make a difference in this whole big
problem of climate change you’ve been hearing so much about.

Then you’ll get to chill out, drink, and eat with your new friends at the post-cleanup happy hour while waxing lyrical about pristine beaches, clean waters, local craft beer….

Long Beach’s Desolate Pike to Use Outlets as Catalyst for New Growth

|
In an entirely silent fashion, EWB Development–the nation’s largest outlet developer–suddenly created a small page that not only renamed the complex (“The Outlets at The Pike”) but touts that the dismal Pike shopping complex will be the new outlet hub for Los Angeles County and Southern California. While it remains unclear how Vermont-based EWB became attached to […]
