First off, thanks to everyone who came out for our holiday edition of 1st Saturday. We had about 80 folks come out and cleared over 500 lbs of trash off Newport’s streets & beaches. The biggest culprits, once again, were cigarette butts (stay tuned for a special on this from ZTN’s own Dr. Wdowin). Again, thanks to all of you for fighting the good fight with us and spreading the word. Read more

Momentum continues to build as we approach spring time in Newport Beach. For our upcoming First Saturday, March 6th, we are proud to offer a new storefront location in Baja Sharkeez of Newport Beach.

Both establishments will serve as our 10AM meeting point to pick up shirts, pickers, bags, and friends for our monthly community pick up. Like El Ranchito, Sharkeez will be offering food and drink specials for the ZT army upon completion of our two hours of volunteering.
Who? You, your friends, your family, your neighbors…

Enjoy some good food, good drinks, and great company while giving back to the community.
Thanks to everyone who came out for our ZeroTrash Newport Coalition kickoff on Saturday. Not gonna lie, the hurricane on Friday night had us a little worried. We would have been hitting the streets, rain or shine, but luckily the trash gods were smiling on us. The sun came out and we were able to pick up after the storm. We caffeinated with XS & Alta Coffee and hit the streets & beaches, picking up over 500 lbs of trash from our streets and beaches. Check out our article from yesterday’s Daily Pilot!
A huge thanks to Avila’s El Ranchito for an unlimited supply of tacos, taquitos, quesedillas; all sorts of amazing mexican grub for everyone in a ZTN shirt (courtesy of Surterre).
