PVHS Cleans Torrance Beach!

On March 24, 2018, PVHS Heal the Bay set out to clean up Torrance Beach. We had 25
members show up to help out. We started at 10 a.m. and continued until noon. We sent people out in pairs

and groups of three. We collected 1,739 pieces of trash. Out of these 1,739 pieces, 203 were plastic wrappers, 667 were miscellaneous pieces of plastic, 271 were styrofoam pieces, and 113 were cigarette butts. We found all of this trash in the bushes, along the

bike path, in the parking lot, by the water, and everywhere in between.

On April 28, 2018, a nice, clear, warm Saturday, PVHS Heal the Bay put on its own
beach clean up at Torrance Beach. The clean up started at 10:00 a.m. and ended at 12:00 p.m. We searched for trash in the bushes, in the sand, by the bike path, and by the water, travelling up and down the coast. We had 25 high school students, ranging from freshmen to seniors, participate in picking up trash all along Torrance Beach. We picked up things like plastic and glass bottles, plastic straws, cigarette butts, cardboard, and so much more, including 242 miscellaneous plastic pieces.
