To celebrate World Ocean’s Day, Role Models Management and YES AND partnered up in organizing a beach clean-up together with LA Waterkeeper and Sustainable School to help clean up Venice Beach. We are happy to report that we had 37 participants use the Litterati app to collect 482 pieces of indefinable litter (though this may not capture a total number of pieces as we had quite a lot of microplastics and other small debris that were likely captured in a single photo). We found 140 drink and food containers and 130 cigarette butts - our top items. And our Cleanup Champions were Carlos Mario (145 pieces), Draper Woody (112 pieces) and Lindsay Morgan (49 pieces).

Thank you all for such a wonderful day. It was a really wonderful event and we had so much fun making an impact together!
