Helping Our Oceans...........

Watch what you wash down the drain
Cooking grease, excessive food waste, and trash in sink drains and disposals can accumulate in city sewer lines and cause blockages that create sewage overflows into the ocean.

Do Not Wash Your Car in the Street
Not only does it use 60 percent more water than a commercial car wash, but the detergent runoff ends up – untreated – in streams, lakes, and the ocean.

  1. I agree! We should also be really careful with plastic bags and ring pull tabs on our drinks. Don't let them get into the waterways as they might be eaten by fish, sea turtles or aquatic birds.
