Launch of New WasteFreeSD.org!

ILACSD recently launched the newly redesigned zero waste database, WasteFreeSD.org!  

Now with more resources, WasteFreeSD.org was redesigned to feature options for residents and businesses to find repair services and donation locations, as well as recycling centers. ILACSD designed the website with zero waste practices in mind to help eliminate trash by keeping reusable, repairable, compostable, and recyclable items from the landfill. We're encouraging San Diegans to adopt a zero waste lifestyle by scaling down waste and maximizing the items in circulation.

Visit WasteFreeSD.org today to find local solutions and learn more about zero waste.

Volunteer Spotlight

This month, we're highlighting an amazing group of students, the Lemon Crest Elementary School Third Grade Class!

The entire third grade class participated in our Adopt-A-Beach Program and adopted La Jolla Shores. Through participating in their first beach cleanup, they learned about the harmful effects of trash on our ecosystems, and they were able to see firsthand how animals, such as seagulls, often mistake pieces of plastic for food. The students were in shock to see a seagull trying to eat a piece of plastic during their cleanup, so they quickly took action by running toward the bird and picking up the plastic. Saving an animal from ingesting plastic debris was a proud moment for these young students. The students are now even more motivated to continue their volunteerism and take part in helping the planet.

The Lemon Crest Elementary School Third Grade Class truly cares about making the world a better place, starting in San Diego. Thank you all for your hard work!

Zero Waste Tip

Take an inventory of what you own to help reduce your waste. Start with your closet! Turn all the hangers in your closet backwards. When you wear something, turn the hanger the correct way. After a year, if anything is still hanging backwards, donate it.

Donate to a local organization and support a cause; search “Textiles/Clothing” on WasteFreeSD.org for locations.

Learn more about zero waste at our 2nd Annual Zero Waste Fair in June.

Education Spotlight

During Earth Month, ILACSD’s education team visited the after school program at Lindo Park Elementary in Lakeside. After learning about the importance of reducing our waste, students used their creativity to turn trash into treasures, including this great white shark made from an egg carton!
