We’ve been documenting the amount and types of litter we find on the beach. It is our hope to see a decline as we continue our efforts. Aside from a decline in trash, we hope to see an increase in beach clean-up participation, and an increase in the well being of wildlife and healthy ecosystems. For example, we have been thrilled to see an increase in Monarch butterflies this year at the beaches. As we do the clean-ups, others will hopefully feel inspired to reduce, re-use, recycle, dispose of waste responsibly, and protect wildlife.

Part 1) WASTE AUDIT Our Waste Audit Team will be collecting information about the amount of plastic generated by our community's boba stores. Because there are currently no statistics surrounding this topic, we will be releasing the results to the Bay Area and our city's government. This will also help us determine the impact of our project as we can compare "before" and "after". Part 2) APPEALS Our Appeals Team will then go back around to the stores and explain our project. According to Alameda's new food ordinance law, boba stores are technically breaking the law by providing plastic straws regardless of whether customers request them or not. We have talked over our project with Alameda City's Department of Public Health. If these boba stores agree to endorse our reusable boba containers and offer discounts for those that bring them in, we will allow them an extension of time to change out their plastic straws into renewable options. (We don't want to hurt their business as they ARE all members of our community as well.) Part 2) BUDGETING/OUTREACH We will be selling reusable boba containers and stainless steel straws to high school students during a publicised lunch event. These will be sold at a low price as to be affordable for all students. RethinkDisposable will help us procure these items. Part 3) MAKING IT HIP What we envision is that these cool-looking new boba containers will become the new "Hydroflask". We are planning to get everyone on this bandwagon. Additionally, thanks to our waste audit, we'll be able to measure our impact efficiently. We're very excited to see what happens!

Our local Tar River access by our Town Common park is continuously full of trash. We will hold a Splash for Trash event on 10/13/2018 to clean the area within a two mile radius. We will be soliciting local boat/paddle owners to take youth out to clean the river and walkers for the surrounding areas.
