Beneath the Surface: Plastic Pollution presentation July 30, 2018

Beneath the Surface

As Part of Plastic Free July, All Our Energy’s Bring Your Own Bag team welcome this presentation featuring Rob DiGiovanni, founder and chief scientist at Atlantic Marine Conservation Society. Come learn about our local marine environment and how it is negatively impacted by marine debris. Marine debris, such as littered items like straws and plastic water bottles, “ghost” fishing gear, and any other foreign objects just don’t belong in these natural marine ecosystems. Come learn about the detriments of marine debris, and how you can help us save marine wildlife by monitoring our beaches! Presented in partnership with Center for Science Teaching and Learning, Sierra Club LI Group, and Long Island Community Foundation

Point Lookout Beach Clean Up July 14, 2018

unnamed1
We’re teaming up with the Town of Hempstead Dept of Conservation and Waterways for this event. It’s Piping Plover season, an endangered bird that nests on our beach. Because they are protected, the town cannot use their machinery to clean up the beach during this nesting season time. So, we’re going to do a manual beach clean up to get keep things tidy, and keep the trash where it belongs, and not on our beach, where it also poses danger for those birds, and all other wildlife as well. All ages welcome with adult supervision.

Please bring your reusable water bottle to stay hydrated!

East Atlantic Beach Cleanup May 21, 2018

Beach cleaning

Thanks to everyone who came out to help clean the beach in East Atlantic Beach! Thanks to Assemblywoman Melissa “Missy” Miller and Councilman Bruce Blakeman for holding the event.

About 25 people collected 213.9 pounds(!) of trash and marine debris including a full lawn bag of recyclables, 5 full lawn bags of trash and assorted metal items and heavy wood debris.

Thanks to The Town of Hempstead for taking it all to its proper place.

Thanks to our volunteers Joan, Karin and Joanne who helped everyone get it done!

The top item-plastic pieces! Plus lots of balloons, cigarette butts, styrofoam pieces and assorted other items that just do not belong on our beach or in our waters.  Great work everyone!

groupsummit

What a 2017 its been! Now we build, for a big 2018.

From renewable energy advocacy and expansion, to climate actions and protection of our local environment, we did so much together with you.
And we’ve done it all through the incredible efforts of our volunteer teams. Your support provides the materials and supplies that they need to make change a reality.

As 2017 began, we built community.
yearendwinter

Our volunteers reached out to over 150 merchants about the Long Beach Bag law- work no one else would do.
We turned out 80% of the comments on the LIPA & PSEG LI revised plan to include more renewables.
Then we put our fundraising efforts into machine washable reusable bags for those who needed them, instead of our operations…
Because it all needed to be DONE.
None would have happened without our team.

SPRING CLIMATE CHANGED

We helped kick off the Long Beach Bag Law with help from so many on Earth Day.
The next week we helped 1000 successfully join the People’s Climate March in Long Beach with our partner organizations.
With those partners, we organized the LI Climate Summit, where over 200 attendees workshopped on ways to address climate change.

SUMMER OF SUN

With help from our friends at EmPower Solar we launched a far-reaching talk on Long Island community solar.
We helped drive public turnout to hear about the Off Shore Wind Farm off Long Beach
Our Nassau-County-wide reusable bag campaign kicked off in Sea Cliff and Lynbrook, including building teams of local volunteers.
We joined in the Long Beach edition of International Coastal Clean Up day with many incredible partners.

FALL TO NOW

yearendfall
We brought together many partners for the local screening of “Ocean Frontiers 3”, with an amazing panel discussion.
Our Sea Cliff Team made huge strides meeting 600 petition signers in one day, with additional events now involving the Village of Sea Cliff.
We helped remove over 300 pounds of recyclables & trash with the Town of Hempstead at Lido Town Beach
We raised another 900 bags donated from companies, making the total given away this year to over 1600 so everyone can bring their own bag!!

As we go into the new year, support is needed for All Our Energy’s important work to continue into 2018. As a 501c3 organization, all donations to All Our Energy are tax deductible.
