Come join our upcoming events!
Celebrate Earth Day 2023 with a fun-raiser for Plastic Beach!
When: Earth Day 2023, 4/22/23, 12 -4 pm
Where: CoLab Public House, 2129 Industrial Ct, Vista, CA 92081
What: This will be a fundraiser to help us buy a much needed EV Van so we can maximize collections whilst minimizing our carbon footprint! Live music, silent auction and raffles of Patagonia, SurfRide, LINKSOUL golf & many more cool stuff!
Why: Plastic Beach is a local Sustainability non-profit bringing plastic bag/wrap recycling to community businesses as no other options are readily available to recycle this problematic material. We’ve collected and recycled over 20,000 lbs. since 2021! Even if you can’t make the event, consider donating to our cause — donate now!
