Recycling at the Rose Bowl!
Team Marine and Marine Biology students from Santa Monica High School
After a morning of recycling on New Years Day, "our total was 2147 plastics, 1300 cans, and 453 glass", according to Jane Davidson of the Polytechnic School in Pasadena, CA. Team Marine worked alongside San Gabrielino High School, UCLA, and SaMo's Marine Biology students to recycle trash left behind from Pasadena's Rose Parade. We rocked out "Ask Me Why I'm Recycling" T-Shirts, signifying that we were recycling for LifeStraws. The LifeStraw is a portable water filtration system that prevents common diarrhoeal diseases from sickening less fortunate people in third world countries. We had a great time helping fellow Eco-Beasts make SoCal a greener, cleaner place.
