This project connected and engaged community members in a Bees Wax Wrap Workshop followed by a shoreline cleanup on Locarno Beach to show people how single-use plastics pollutes our parks and oceans and how people can reduce or eliminate single-use plastics in their everyday life.

The Bees Wax Wrap Workshop was so much fun and productive with every participant bringing home many bees wax wraps that they made. During the workshop it was interesting hearing all the discussion on other ways to reduce or eliminate single-use plastics in everyday life.

At the Locarno Beach shoreline cleanup the need to eliminate single-use plastics was apparent with all the plastic bags, bottles and wrappers collected.
