Ocean Friendly Restaurants Program Launches in Bellingham!

Our chapter members have been hard at work over the past few months starting our chapter’s new program, Ocean Friendly Restaurants. The goal of the program is to stop plastic pollution at it’s source, one consumer at a time. By targeting restaurants we can build awareness on the plastic pollution issue and influence behavioral shifts away from single use plastics. Join us for an Earth Day Beach Cleanup from 4-6 at Locust Beach and an OFR Launch Party with Aslan Brewing Co. this Sunday 4/22  from 6-9pm!
