3rd Annual Green Week

This past week was the 3rd annual Green Week, an event to promote the preservation of our environment here in Oceanside. There were some great events to help everyone do just that – a free e-waste drop off, a beach cleanup, an environmental film festival, a compost workshop, and an entire fair down by the beach. The Earth Organization was the sponsor of the event, working with other organizations such as San Diego Coastkeeper to provide activities and information during the week. Even Girl Scout Troup 48.49 was out to clean the beach, and the Sunshine Brooks Theater hosted a showing of the film Bag It, a documentary on the use and harm of plastic bags. Children competed in making elaborate art displays relating to environmental preservation awareness, and reusable bags were given out to everyone who showed up to the Green Week events. KOCT covered Green Week’s events, so stay tuned for a Newsbrief beginning the 21st on both Channels 18 and 19.
