Earth Day 2008 Logo

I’m sure most of you knew yesterday was Earth Day (wait, it was?!) and here at dt we consider Earth Day an official holiday. So yesterday we took the day off and headed out to do a little dirty work at the beach (Mike Rowe would be proud). We met at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach and headed North & South of the pier to do some cleanup.

The response from the community was awesome and we had about 35 volunteers meet up at the pier to help with some serious Earth Day lovin’! Some of the volunteers came from places like Mission Playground, StayClassy.org, West of the Five, Sycuan Learning Center, and more. One guy, Dillan Flinn drove all the way down from Newport to help out! Phh way to go buddy! Also, thanks to Surfrider Foundation for donating bags, gloves and hand sanitizer.

If you missed out on this Earth Day (we’re sorry to hear that) you can always contact your local Surfrider Foundation and see when the next beach cleanup is… or just get out there today and clean up yourself. 🙂

Thanks again to all of our volunteers who came out with smiles and a willingness to help! You guys totally ROCK!!

  • I just tried submitting the following to the startupsd blog, but it is down. I thought someone here might know someone who would be interested in helping bring web 2.0 to the forest:

    San Diego County origin skills and technomad forest gathering: Fri May 9 – Mon May 12 and beyond

    I’ve contacted the permaculture and local food activist community about this event, and I’m looking for a way to get more participants interested in the technomad end of things.

    If you’re at all interested in helping others learn about mobile blogging
    and networking technology that could be used, say, along the Pacific Crest Trail, please let me know.

    ‘#technomad’ at the end of the url links to the technomad part of the description.

    Peace,
