How Can You Protect Santa Monica Bay?
Be an environmentally-aware consumer.
Use non-toxic products in your home and garden, including no herbicides and pesticides.
Conserve water and reduce runoff by not over-watering your lawn or garden.
Divert rain spouts and other sources of runoff onto grass or vegetation.
Use a broom rather than a hose to clean up garden clippings, dirt, and litter from sidewalks, patios, and driveways, and use appropriate city bins.
When changing car fluids, use a drip pan to collect any spills. If a spill occurs, soak it up using an absorbent material such as kitty litter or sawdust and dispose of it properly at an approved household hazardous waste collection site.
