Today Lauren and I took part in the 17th Annual Great Los Angeles River Cleanup. Who knew that the LA River was more than just a concrete channel? That it actually looks like a real river in places? Not I. But it is, and does, and I was very happy to play a miniscule part in making it a bit prettier today.
Did you know that Americans will use 100 billion plastic shopping bags this year? From what I saw today, about half of them will end up on the banks of the LA River. Do your bit, folks. All that plastic is harmful to birds and fish and other living things.
