It is with excitement and sincere gratitude to let you know that on Thursday evening at Green Drinks we received a donation from http://www.mission2ocean.com/ to support our Marine Debris Solutions Lifecycle project (MDSLP). It is great to see local businesses working on innovative ways to up cycle plastic and at the same time helping to fix the problems of the past. We look forward to working together with Mission 2.Ocean into the future. Thanks also to everyone who came to Green Drinks on Thursday night, Kara for making it happen, Bill for hosting the event and providing the great food and Tyson for an inspiring talk on how Sailors for The Sea are healing the ocean.
Thank you to the dedicated water testing team that collects 9 samples every Thursday. Results from late October show that bacterial levels remain a problem and we need to keep this issue at the forefront so that we can achieve permanent year-round clean water. How can you help? How about volunteering to collect water samples, analyzing the data, donating to the cause so we can continue to run the program, helping to build our annual report and using a digital publishing tool with cool info-graphics! There are many ways to get involved, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
