Heal the Bay  Skip the plastic drinking straw, make a difference.

Thx Steve Lopez and @LAtimes for spending a day on the #LARiver, testing H2O quality with Heal the Bay scientists.
Improved water quality needs to be part of the conversation about the $1B LA River revitalization plan.

L.A. sucks at times, but we don't have to! We just launched our new campaign microsite (thx @zehnergroup!) for #StrawlessSummer.
You can take the pledge to go strawless, share with your friends and find out which local bars and restaurants are going straws-upon-request >> lasucks.org

@thesoundla rocks! Tune in Sunday at 7:30am for our ocean-friendly interview with Tina Mastramico.

Thanks @cfoxthesound for the on-air shout out about #StrawlessSummer. 100.3 is definitely tuned in!

We sorted out some straws collected at recent beach cleanups by color - can you tell where they came from? #StrawlessSummer #StrawsSuck

Thrilled to bring our beach cleanup and ocean water quality work to the international stage - we've been named to the Sustainability Oversight Committee for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games! So long #LA2024, hello #LA2028! πŸŠπŸŽ–οΈβ›±οΈ

FRESH NEWS: We invite you to jump into our new #RiverReportCard - your source for clean water info at L.A.'s freshwater recreation zones. We're testing for bacterial pollution along the L.A. River, Malibu Creek and other popular kayaking and swimming spots.
Get rid of the ick factor and check the latest grades each week on our new portal, because a day on the water shouldn't make anyone sick >> healthebay.org/riverreportcard

We can help secure our H2O future with multi-benefit projects that prioritize natural solutions. Projects that capture and reuse #stormwater runoff are good for the environment, good for the local economy AND good for quality of life!

We're excited to be a part of the @ourwaterla coalition! Check out our new website to learn more about #water issues and solutions in Greater LA >> ourwaterla.org

Forget about Michael Phelps racing against a CGI shark (disappointing!) and experience the real thing at the @smpieraquarium. We're celebrating #SharkWeek with live feeding presentations, themed films, displays, guest speakers and more! Learn all about these critically important and misunderstood creatures >> healthebay.org/event/shark-week-2017

Our @smpieraquarium summer campers discover the wonders of marine invertebrates, animals without backbones, through hands-on learning. The day begins with a walk to Santa Monica Beach where we observe the shoreline like scientists. πŸ–β˜€οΈπŸ”Ž Then, we jump to finding sand crabs πŸ¦€ and making watercolors inspired by invertebrates like moon πŸŒ™ jellies and sea cucumbers. 🌊πŸ₯’ Summer Camp at the Aquarium is still open for enrollment with a few spots left - register today at: healthebay.org/camps

The BIGGEST volunteer day to protect the ocean, #CoastalCleanupDay on 9/16, is open for registration in LA County. Whether you want to tidy up the beach or spruce up a neighborhood park or school yard, dive underwater or skim the top, we've got you covered.
Coastal Cleanup Day has an astounding impact on many of our local natural habitats and communities worldwide.
During last year's event, nearly 800,000 people picked up over 18 million pounds of trash and debris in just a few hours. Let's see what we can accomplish together this year! Get details and register at healthebay.org/CCD

Thx to our friends at All At Once, the @smpieraquarium is hosting a special screening of the new film "The Smog of the Sea" on July 22, which documents the fate of #plastics in the world's oceans.

The film screening is included with Aquarium admission, and you'll also be entered into our raffle for the ultimate #StrawlessSummer pack featuring sweet gear from @kleankanteen, @patagonia, Santa Monica Pier Aquarium and Heal the Bay.

β˜€οΈ680 energy-filled volunteers kept cool by the ocean πŸ’™and picked up 127 pounds of trash πŸ’™ today at Redondo Beach Pier during our #NothinButSand cleanup. Huge shoutout to everyone for doing your part to keep our community clean and safe! β˜€οΈ
