Foam Drive at Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific

When: Back to Calendar » January 14, 2012 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Come to the EPS foam collection event happening at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, on January 14th, 2012. Do your part to keep polystyrene foam out of the environment and the oceans we love. Also, check out the exhibits at the world class Aquarium of the Pacific.

Foam donors will get a 20% discount on any purchases at the Aquarium Gift Store.

EPS foam is commonly known as “styrofoam” or “expanded polystyrene foam”, and is hard white foam that comes in packaging for fragile consumer goods such as televisions, furniture, and computers. Please see How the Program Works for the kinds of foam that can be donated.

This event is being sponsored by Waste Management, who will haul away the collected EPS foam to be made into new surfboard blanks.

This event is also being covered in local newspapers, such as the Long Beach Post.
