I'm supposed to be packing for an overnight to Sacramento, but I had to get this done first.
I will be lobbying with the Clean Seas Coalition, and Heal the Bay to support Santa Monica Assemblywoman Brownley's Bill AB1998 - which proposes a ban on single-use plastic bags.

Surfrider is also helping me get to Sacramento to represent their Rise Above Plastics Campaign. You have to see their site, the opening short animated video is amazing!

Please go to Oceana and take the Ocean Hero Pledge, then vote for one of the 2010 Ocean Hero finalists. It is a tough choice, but I hope you'll support The Daily Ocean. I'm one of the six! Voting is only open until May 26th. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.
Also Oceana gets 1$ for every pledge. Even more of a great reason to vote!!
It started to rain while I was driving down there, but the sun peeked out at the end. It had been a few days since I'd been able to get down for a collection. I miss the beach if I am away from it for more that a day or two. I hope everyone has a place they feel like that about.
