Today’s blog post comes from our fantastic Community Events intern, Rebecca!
We are happy to announce that the Best Buy in Mission Valley has joined the Adopt-A-Beach program at Mission Bay South Shores! California’s Adopt-A-Beach program gives people of all ages the opportunity to learn about and actively participate in conserving coastal resources. The Adopt-A-Beach program is I Love A Clean San Diego’s most popular volunteer program. A statewide program funded by the California Coastal Commission, ILACSD coordinates over 10,000 volunteers annually through the Adopt-A-Beach program.
Best Buy volunteers love getting out and cleaning up Mission Bay. Says sales associate Ivan Gonzalez, “I had a great time at our first beach cleanup event. It was a great feeling helping to make San Diego a beautiful place for everyone including our marine wildlife. I can’t wait for the next event!”
Joining the Adopt-A-Beach Program is another step forward in spreading the word about having a sustainable future. Best Buy is also committed to helping you recycle those used electronics piling up in your garage. If your old electronics have no trade-in value Best Buy can recycle them for free! Visit Bestbuy.com/recycling to find out more electronic items Best Buy can recycle for free. Their certified third party partners break down recycled products into commodities. These commodities then get a second life when they are reused to create a new product.
Thanks to Best Buy in Mission Valley for joining our Adopt-A-Beach Program. Are you interested in adopting your own beach or canyon? Sign up today to adopt a site of your choice and conduct cleanups based on your schedule!
