Green business solutions workshop

Did you know that by setting your computer to energy saving modes like “hibernate” or “sleep” you can reduce your electricity usage and save up to $50 per computer annually? (EnergyStar)

Join ILACSD and learn how to implement energy saving skills and other zero waste practices at your work by attending the Green Business Solutions Workshop on February 21. I Love A Clean San Diego will be partnering with the City of Chula Vista to host this free workshop at the Chula Vista Chamber of Commerce. We will identify the importance of adopting zero waste practices, how to implement them in your business, engage employees, and reap the environmental and economic benefits of going green. Whether you work in an office, a restaurant, or retail, we have valuable information for all business models.

Paint Can

Painting a Zero Waste Picture

Did you know that paint is banned from being thrown in the trash can!? Leftover paint (like many other products commonly found in your home) is considered household hazardous waste (HHW) when it is not used entirely. HHW products contain potentially hazardous metals that require special care when being disposed. So what should you do with these items? NEVER pour paint down the drain! The safest and easiest way to dispose of paint is to take unused paint cans to a PaintCare Program participating retailer. These paint retailers do not accept aerosol, industrial, original equipment, or specialty coatings. To find a participating retailer or a local HHW collection facility, visit WasteFreeSD.org.

Volunteer Spotlight:
Melanie, Sam, & the Wells Fargo Green Team

Melanie Azcuna and Sam Pustilnik bring their Wells Fargo Green Team to ILACSD cleanups all the time to beautify San Diego! Melanie is ILACSD’s newest board member and a Wells Fargo Branch Manager. Sam, also a Wells Fargo employee, is the leader of the Wells Fargo Green Team – a group of Wells Fargo employees that dedicate time and energy to environmental stewardship across San Diego. For over six months, Melanie and Sam have brought the Green Team to ILACSD cleanups, and have used their weekends to make a difference in the community.

According to Sam, “I have always had a passion for the outdoors, and things like environmental sustainability and wildlife protection are passions of mine. These cleanups directly address the problems with pollution in the environment, and I’m glad I can make a difference.”

The group volunteered at two Coastal Cleanup Day locations in 2017 – Carlsbad State Beach and Golden Hill Park – and are excited to participate at our Creek to Bay Cleanup on April 21st. Join in on the volunteer fun by signing up today to join these amazing volunteers at Creek to Bay or any of our upcoming cleanups.
