Sharp volunteers enjoy talking with students around the country and learning about your ideas to help the planet. On the Eco-Blog, Sharp Solar Academy volunteers share students' ideas and their own observations about climate change and the environment. Together we can make a difference.

From Beaches to Mountains: Pick Up Trash

My favorite place to be is outside. Nothing is more fun than hanging out on the beach, in the mountains or at the park. And because I love these areas so much, I feel that it’s important to help give back. Onee way I do that is to volunteer for the Surfrider Foundation and help pick up trash. They sponsor beach cleanups all across the East and West Coasts.

We have other local conservation groups, like the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, who host native plant planting events, habitat restoration projects, and trail maintenance. 

The Bolsa Chica Conservancy also has cool monthly trash clean ups and non-native vegetation removal. If you have never participated in a trash pick event, I’d recommend it. It’s a ton of fun and makes a big difference!
