He will be joining Surf Rider and about 60 students from Innovations Academy. There will be Surfrider activists from Rise Above Plastics and many others present.

Ed is asking City Council to push for the citywide ban on single use plastic bags. Over 100 cities in California have banned single use bags and Ed believes that we in San Diego shouldn’t wait any longer.

He’s asking us to join him and to encourage our friends, dive partners and neighbors to stand up for our bays and oceans.
