Will you stand up for clean water? As it turns out, there are many Santa Monica residents who did just that. For the second year in a row, the Los Angeles Waterkeeper hosted the Stand-Up for Clean Water event. Perhaps instead of “stand-up” they should have called this “bend over and pick up” because that’s exactly what these dedicated volunteers did. Along with the cleanup efforts there was a paddle-board race, swimming contests, food and information about keeping the beaches of Santa Monica clean.
Liz Crosson is the executive director at LAW and explained their mission and how they work to reach their goals. “We fight for a drinkable, fishable and swimmable LA,” Crosson told a local newspaper. “We just won a lawsuit in Malibu, which will help us in keeping those beaches clean from now on.”
The LAW is part of the bigger Waterkeeper Alliance organization. They do work work all over the world. “We do over 32,000 water inspections a year in L.A. County,” said Pete Nichols, the National Director of the Waterkeeper Alliance. “Clean water is a basic human right.”
If this event proved one thing it is that cleaning up can be fun. Of course, when it comes to cleaning up your own home that is sometimes a chore left until the very last minute like when company is coming over. However, anytime is a good time to get rid of junk especially when you can count on Junk King Los Angeles to do all the work.
