Environmental Endeavors San Leandro Bans Polystyrene Foam Food Service Ware The City of San Leandro adopted a Polystyrene Foam Food Service Ware Ordinance that requires the City and local food establishments to discontinue the use of polystyrene foam (also known as Styrofoam ®) food service ware products as of November 1, 2012. Banned polystyrene foam food service ware products include cups, bowls, plates, clamshell containers, soup containers and trays made from expanded foam polystyrene typically labeled #6. Polystyrene foam is not recyclable and is often found polluting waterways and public spaces. For information, call 577-6026 or visit us at www.recyclesanleandro.org.

Alameda County Bans Plastic Bags Each year the United States consumes 30 billion plastic grocery bags, requiring 12 million barrels of oil. These bags litter our roadsides, clog our storm drains, and contaminate our oceans. The City of San Leandro encourages you to: REDUCE waste by using your own bags every time you shop. REUSE paper and plastic bags as many times as you can. RECYCLE your plastic bags at your local grocery store. On January 1, 2013, Alameda County Waste Management Authority passed a Single Use Bag Reduction ordinance that bans the distribution of single use carryout bags and imposes a minimum $0.10 per bag fee for paper and reusable bags at grocery stores and other retailers. Please visit www.reusablebagsac.org.

Muir Woods and Mount Tamalpais We hope you join us for a day of exploring some of the Bay Area’s most famous and breathtakingly beautiful parks. President Theodore Roosevelt declared Muir Woods a National Monument in 1908, and named it after the well-known naturalist, John Muir. Muir Woods is an oldgrowth coastal redwood forest, and has been the inspiration behind several famous photographs taken by artist and environmentalist Ansel Adams. We will take a leisurely walk in the woods (on a paved path), stop by the visitor’s center and enjoy the gorgeous wilderness. We will also visit Mount Tamalpais State Park, which boasts one of the best views in California.
