With St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, we’d like to thank those of you who help us “green” Los Angeles and our planet. It’s gratifying to know we’re in this together!
Thank you to the Santa Monica City Council for unanimously voting to support the Earth with the Santa Monica Sustainability Bill of Rights. The law recognizes that “residents of Santa Monica possess fundamental and inalienable rights to: clean water from sustainable sources; marine waters safe for active and passive recreation….”
We’d also like to thank the staff at the Mayme Clayton Library in Culver City for hosting our Earth Month Youth Summit. Students from six local schools, including groups from Dorsey and Crenshaw high schools, came out last Saturday to learn about “greening” their campuses and communities. Big thanks to Alison Jefferson, Rick Blocker and Rusty White who came to the summit to discuss the documentary White Wash, which chronicles the history of black surfing.
