be doing everyday to help remedy our plastic pollution issues. Some of

Two CUSD High School Seniors Pen Winning Essays in SHACC Scholarship Contest
an educational component to “From Plastic to
Fantastic,” SHACC invited high school seniors in the Capistrano Unified
School District to participate in an essay contest on the topic:
“Problems and Solutions to Plastic Pollution.” SHACC is pleased to
announce that Ila Jane Foskett and Joseph Bell, both students of San
Clemente High School, have each been selected to receive a $1,000.00
teamed up with Sustainable Surf and their Waste to Waves program and are inviting all SHACC visitors to help ACTIVATE the "From Plastic
to Fantastic" exhibit, by bringing in their own "trash" (otherwise
known as a resource...) to be upcycled or recycled into your next
piece of surf gear–become part of the solution to
plastic pollution–everyone who brings in a "resource" to be upcycled or
recycled gets entered into a drawing for some of the same products
on display at the exhibit.
Resources (clean) to be collected at
SHACC from August 27 through the end of November: styrofoam packaging,
wine corks, wetsuits and kiteboard sails.
The exhibition runs through November. We now have the catalog for the exhibit available, drop by SHACC for a complementary copy.
