“Water is the driving force in nature.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
Tomorrow we celebrate the global importance of clean, fresh water as part of World Water Day. In most of the world, people don’t have access to safe drinking water, while here in Los Angeles protecting our water remains an ongoing challenge.
Which is why we are so grateful to our partners and friends who support our work to maintain a locally sustainable water supply and to protect what we all love and value—clean water!
We are also thankful to the 715 volunteers who joined us to pick up 371 pounds of trash at Nothin’ But Sand last Saturday at Venice Pier. Plus, as part of our ongoing Zero Waste initiative, we only used a handful of plastic bags, as most folks either brought their own buckets, or borrowed one of ours! A special shout out to Jason Holland and the Credit Suisse team, whose volunteer hours translated into donation dollars, ensuring that our effective pollution prevention programs such as Nothin' But Sand keep running and keep our local waters clean.
We’d also like to thank Canehill Glass Ranch for donating to our clean water cause, including lovely repurposed glass “thank you items” to some of our top supporters.
