EBA Gives Back Event:
Sunday, January 17th, 2016, 9am - 12noon

We invite everyone to participate with the EBA Gives Back event in Long Beach, California.
This year’s activity is an opportunity to give back to the environment. The event takes place at Algalita’s Marine and Research and Education Center (Algalita). Algalita, founded in 1994, specializes in monitoring plastic pollution in the oceans. Algalita's Founder and Research Director, Captain Charles Moore, was the first to discover the "swirling soup of plastic debris" in the Pacific's north eastern gyre, known by many as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. For nearly 20 years, Algalita has been searching for answers on plastic pollution in the marine ecosystem and is dedicated to the protection and improvement of the marine environment and its watersheds through research and education on the impacts of plastic pollution. For more information, go to Algalita’s website at
For this half-day activity, please join us and support Algalita in pollution prevention.
Some of the tasks include:

  • working sand stations
  • sieving sand
  • picking up plastic
  • writing down observations
  • filling out data sheets

If you plan to volunteer, please dress accordingly. If you wish to participate or have any questions, please contact Holly Neber at or Don Kellar at We will be arranging the transportation.
