Eat at Clean Bay Restaurants!

Did you know there are over 350 restaurants in Santa Monica Bay Watershed that are working hard to reduce ocean pollution and improve water quality? TBF’s Clean Bay Certified (CBC) program works with cities to inspect and certify restaurants that voluntarily implement initiatives to protect our environment. These restaurants achieve 100% of the CBC to-do’s checklist, which focuses on reducing stormwater runoff pollution generated by restaurant activities. An average restaurant throws away 150,000 lbs of garbage per year and uses 300,000 gallons of water per year. We are proud to have 11 cities in the Santa Monica Bay Watershed participating and we encourage you to find restaurants you’d like to support in their efforts HERE.

Recently we co-presented CBC awards to several restaurants in Rolling Hills Estates with the Rolling Hills Estates City Council. Check out the full list HERE.

On a related note, we would like to congratulate the City of Malibu on banning the distribution of plastic straws, stirrers, and utensils at Malibu food service establishments. What a great step towards plastic free oceans!

Proud to share that a recent #dockwalker grad Rob W. of #Venrura Port District put his training to work perfectly! While conducting his dock walks, he observed an #oilspill from a local fishing vessel, he promptly notified the Harbor patrol and in doing so, they were able to…

So proud! Dockwalker Rob W. #VenturaPortDistrict put his training to work! Dockwalking, he saw an #oilspill from a local fishing vessel & notified Harbor patrol. They were able to contain the spill & provide clean-up absorbent pads, minimizing environmental hazard. GO DOCKWALKERS
