Even children know that all the water we use and have is the same water that the dinosaurs were drinking. It stands to reason that we better treat all our water right.

What we do to the water that comes from the sky, that comes out of our pipes and that runs through our creeks becomes a part of the whole hydrological system. We can make better choices in our day to day activities that impact water quality.

In the Santa Monica Bay, there are nearly 30,000 restaurants, bars, and eateries.  The Clean Bay Restaurant Certification Program (aka Clean Bay Eats) recognizes restaurants that integrate sustainability and ocean-mindedness into their business practices.
