Earlier this year, I met with San Diego Coastkeeper about sponsoring a beach cleanup event. I had been wanting to get involved with this type of event for about a year and a half, and the launch of our new business name seemed like the perfect opportunity to make it happen.
One of the main points of focus as Seventy1 Environmental is community involvement. Our techs have their hands in stormwater pollution every day and we see firsthand what flows down the storm drains. With this knowledge, it is impossible to not think about the quality and cleanliness of the water in which we fish, swim and surf. We consider it a responsibility to pass this information on to others in our community so they, too, can see the impact of stormwater runoff on our waterways.
San Diego Coastkeeper actively works to protect these waters, so it made sense to connect with this group. We held our first beach cleanup on May 3rd. It was a blast to meet with like-minded people that live in Southern California and truly care about the quality of water and our environment. Thank you Coastkeeper!
