Team Sonya Dakar recently joined Surfrider LA in a beach cleanup at Topanga State Beach. Having roots in Southern California and being avid beachgoers, Sonya Dakar in committed to being responsible stewards of our local beaches by tackling plastic pollution, addressing poor water quality and promoting healthy beaches for humans and wildlife to enjoy.
We’re excited about the recent Hold On To Your Butts campaign. We were shocked to hear that over 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are littered every year. The goal of this campaign is to cut down on cigarette butt pollution in our community so that dirty butts don’t wind up on the beaches we all love. In the coming months, cigarette disposal ashcans will be installed along the coast from Marina del Rey to the Ventura County line. Butts collected through our ashcans will be recycled through TerraCycle!
