Event Description

In honor of World Oceans Day, ByFusion is assembling a lifeguard tower made with 100 percent recycled plastic waste including previously non-recyclable plastics and Channel Islands Surfboards foam waste on the sand at Bruce’s Beach in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

 

ByFusion will be assembling the lifeguard tower, built from recycled plastic waste. State Senator Ben Allen will be speaking at 11:45 am, and a Sr. Field Representative from Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi’s office and Manhattan Beach Mayor Nancy Hersman will be in attendance. In the morning there will be a beach cleanup organized by Heal the Bay and South Bay Boardriders Club with help from Sustainable Surf and Channel Islands Surfboards.

Today, there are 8.3 billion tons of plastic in the world and less than nine percent of it is recycled which means 8 – 10 million tons ends up in our oceans every year. As municipalities and waste management facilities struggle to keep up with the continual influx of plastic waste, ByFusion has developed an innovative solution that enables municipalities and waste management the ability to block it on land creating an alternative building material that prevents it from polluting our oceans and communities permanently.

7:30 am – 5:00 pm – ByFusion builds lifeguard tower
