In November, we attended the Clean Marin Trash Summit, an event that brought anti-litter advocates together. We heard from Keynote Speaker David Lewis, Executive Director of Save the Bay and talked about ways we can collectively reduce trash in our communities.

Their website mywatershedwatch.org provides free resources and easy everyday ways to prevent pollution in your neighborhood, our local creeks and the Bay.
