Clean Spirited is proud to support Friends of Ballona Wetlands as our May charity of the month. This worthy charity has been protecting and restoring the Ballona Wetlands in Playa Del Rey, California for over 33 years with the help of over 70,000 volunteers! Along with habitat restoration activities, Friends of Ballona Wetlands also facilitates the cleanup of Ballona Creek during special project days for corporate groups, community groups, and “Eco Holidays” such as Earth Day and Coastal Cleanup Day. During these events, individuals, families, and community groups contribute to efforts to revitalize the wetlands. They also offer activities such as the L.A. Audubon Bird Walks where you can see snow egrets, black-crowned night-herons, pelicans and many more beautiful birds. Clean Spirited had the pleasure of shooting our spring photoshoot in the gorgeous saltwater marsh at the Ballona Wetlands. A perfect backdrop full of colorful wildflowers and wildlife! And, just this past week, we attended the Ballona Watershed Warrior Celebration in downtown LA where the Friends honored two local environmental activists, Zev Yaroslavsky and Joe Edmiston. It was an honor to be a part of this celebration. $1 from every order during the month of May will be donated to this very worthy charity.
