Shrimp n' Lobster are thrilled to be taking part in the Night of Ideas event at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. "The theme, "facing our Time" will be exploring challenges around ecological and climate change through the lenses of science, nature and art." Look for Shrimp n' Lobster in the Nature Lab on the ground floor! They will be hosting a Color-It-In Sea Creature workshop as well as a photo booth where you can pose with your salty BFF's, Shrimp n' Lobster! Don't limit your experience to just one area, as much as we love seeing our creative and Eco-conscious friends, be sure to diversify yourselves and experience the beautiful language of French in the booth just next to us! Not to mention there will be a beautiful array of speakers, music and even a vegan fashion show!

Look under the Ocean surface and you will find thousands of golf balls littered on the ocean floor near famed Pebble Beach Golf course. This is a stark reminder to think twice before you send a hard drive out to sea. Golf balls are plastic and release toxins, not to mention micro plastics into the ocean as they slowly break down. Luckily hero's like Alex Weber are picking up these toxic eyesores! Check out his story HERE!
Companies are changing for the better! Thank you to Ikea, Royal Caribbean and Sea World for banning plastic straws and bags from your facilities. Let's hope your strong stance will influence others (shareholders) of other large companies to follow suit. Learn about these changes (which can't come soon enough!) HERE!
Habits are hard to break but this one will help us all, especially our wonderful sea creatures, who are the ones hurting from our plastic overload. Remember if you can't use it refuse it! Let's reject straws and plastic bags! We have more power by just saying no.
China has stopped purchasing our recyclables unless we start "cleaning" up our act! They give us a 0.5 % buffer of impurities...Otherwise our garbage stays here. Keep it clean and learn about our predicament in San Francisco, HERE!
As we push to be a zero waste city by 2020 (that's two years!) let's be more cognizant about what we purchase. If you can't reuse it, refuse it! That means avoid one use plastics! Try it. See if you can take a tally of what you pick up at the grocery store. You might be throwing away more than you think. The bottom line, this stuff we are throwing out is building up.
After all it's quite easy! Say, "No Thanks" to the straw in your drink, to the lids for your take out coffee's. A little bit every day, makes a huge difference! Even the Royals are jumping on the Green bandwagon. Check it out HERE!
The non profit, Ocean Cleanup, has begun the process of taking plastics out of the ocean! Learn about this massive project HERE!
The material that we've come to know in nearly every purchase we make, may define this day in Age. Check it out HERE!
