Simple Green® and The Los Angeles Conservation Corps Team Up To Clean Up Griffith Park
Huntington Beach, CA - Sunshine Makers, Inc. - the makers of Simple Green, are proud to announce their continuing partnership with the Los Angeles Conservation Corps (LACC), the largest non-profit youth corps in the United States. This year, to celebrate Earth Day, Simple Green and the LACC will work together to help refurbish Griffith Park. Some of the changes that will be taking place include removal of debris from recent wildfires and rain-water run-off, replanting of trees and shrubbery to beautify the area and help control erosion, and clearing walking and hiking trails for all to enjoy. On Friday, April 25th, the employees of Simple Green and the volunteers of the LACC will join forces in a landmark project to restore, beautify and heal Griffith Park.
The Los Angeles Conservation Corps was founded in 1986, and their mission is to provide at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community. One of the many programs they offer is the SEA Lab in Redondo Beach, which offers free and low-cost educational programs about marine wildlife and hands-on activities to more than 30,000 visitors every year. College-aged students trained by the LACC lead tours and activities which include a sea-life touch-tank, hands-on classroom lessons and community service projects. In 2005, the USS EGBAR, an interactive educational program built and funded by Simple Green and the EGBAR Foundation, housed in a unique submarine themed kiosk, began its maiden voyage: to help all visitors of the SEA Lab understand how improper waste disposal harms the environment, and how to be environmentally responsible through proper recycling and conservation.
The makers of Simple Green are proud of their continued support of the LACC, and their work to make a difference and educate children about the importance of environmental responsibility and protecting our most precious resource, our planet. Bruce FaBrizio and the Sunshine Makers organization believe in this partnership and are reminded every day of the many positive things that come from it. Together, Simple Green and the LACC have a very bright future.
