San Francisco based branch of Wells Fargo clean up Ocean Beach with man’s best friend. By Karisa Boyce
Some participants of the Create a Cleanup program choose to donate to Ocean Blue and become Annual Corporate Members. Wells Fargo of San Francisco is just one of the many businesses doing just that. This donation supports beach cleanups in the Bay Area as well as the Blue Schools Program that educates and inspires youth of all ages to be beach stewards.
In July 2019, Wells Fargo Asset Management employees took time out of their busy day to meet at Ocean Beach for a cleanup! Employees and one dog collected several large compostable bags full of debris, both land and marine-based. A new dart board game was found amongst the rubbish left on the beach. Without this amazing team of beach stewards, this debris would have made its way out to the ocean to become food for marine animals.
A special thank you to the San Francisco Wells Fargo Asset Management department employee, Julie Parker, who made this cleanup effort possible!

Newport, Oregon has one of the friendless post office I have ever visited. The other day Ocean Blue was shipping Marine Debris Kits to schools and learning how the mail system ships by weight.
The first large solar expansion is located in Los Angeles California. The most superb confrontations the postmaster was chatting with me about the program the poster service is part played an important role to protect ocean by lowering carbon emission by using electric mail trucks. Over 750,000 mail trucks delivering mail cost our federal government almost 1 cent per gallon and over 1 million dollars in fuel every day. You may see a mail truck traveling 60 miles per hours heading down a highway while most routes are within 10 miles, and many walk our mail door to door.

Visiting California many of us think of warm beaches, surf boards, and movie stars but let it be known California has so many hidden treasures other cities would dream of. For example take a look at The Last Bookstore founded by Josh Spencer back in 2005, and this book store was operating out of a loft in downtown California, which many of you locals may have visited this prior to the change overs that took place shortly after the vision Josh Spencer transpired.
This bookstore has a diverse selection of titles that spans two floors with the labyrinth of wonder; tunnels and passageways made of colorful books, and interspersed with art of tales for the wondering minds. Shortly after Josh Spencer founded The Last Bookstore in 2005, moved into a small retail shop on fourth and main street in Los Angeles.
