Saturday is California Coastal Cleanup Day.

The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes this as the “largest garbage collection” in the world.

Once again … tens of thousands of Californians Will fan out along beaches and inland rivers to collect trash before it ends up in the ocean.

More than 35% of the garbage picked up on the beaches consists of cigarettes and cigarette filters.

That massive load of butts may diminish a little if governor Gavin Newsom signs a bill on his desk.

It would to ban smoking at all state beaches.

There would be a $25 fine for violators.

Former Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed similar bills three times, saying people should be allowed to smoke outdoors in parks.

But this year there’s a new governor.

Nuisance might also sign a ban on smoking pipes or vaping devices or any other lighted or heated tobacco product on any state beach or in any state park in California.

Malibu already has a smoking ban on County Beaches.

Getting back to the coastal cleanup … more than 65 thousand volunteers are expected to turn out at beaches from Oregon to Mexico on Saturday.

The event runs from 9 a.m. until noon, and volunteers can still sign up by going to www.coastalcleanupday.org


We will see how many students at malibu schools will jon that worldwide students strike.

Students around the world are planning a climate action strike today.

as we reported yesterday … they will be considered cutting classin Malibu.

Even if parents sign their kids out for the strike??

That is still an unexcused absence .… Drati says.

School superintendent Ben Drati has sent out a letter … warning that Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District schools are not sanctioning, coordinating or facilitating any planned student walkouts.

He calls the planned student strike a big disruption to our teaching and learning programming on our campuses.

The district doe not have the capacity to supervise or monitor students who choose to leave school.Any student who is missing from class will be marked as an unexcused cut for the missing time.
