San Diego Coastkeeper's lab manager conducts an experiment on water quality using San Diego River water and common household fertilizers. The results of his experiment show how much murkier water becomes after a small amount of fertilizer is added. Imagine all of the fertilizer used in San Diego County and how, when it makes its way into our water, it collectively adds up. Learn more at http://www.sdcoastkeeper.org.
Do you ever wonder where your water in San Diego comes from? Do you know what type of impact that has on our environment or how much energy it uses? Watch San Diego Coastkeeper's video on the water supply in San Diego to learn more. Then visit us at http://www.sdcoastkeeper.org.
Recently, LUSH volunteers teamed up with San Diego Coastkeeper to help clean a local beach. In just 2 hours, they collected over 2500 pieces of plastic, more than 800 cigarette butts, and over 600 pieces of Styrofoam—totaling almost 27 lbs of trash!
Twice-a-month, Coastkeeper, and our partners Surfrider Foundation, San Diego Chapter, hosts a local beach cleanup like this one. If you love your beach and like it clean, bring your friends and family to volunteer at our next event!
