Omar Tello and Roman and Sophia Beetz play with the vehicles on the water shed model table and learn about “Keep It Clean Malibu” in 2014. 

Malibu City Council named March 24 – April 30 as Earth Month in Malibu at its last meeting on March 12. 

Among planned activities, the city’s Environmental Sustainability Department will conduct outreach to inform residents about the single-use plastics ban and suitable alternatives. In lieu of single-use straws, paper straws branded with “‘Keep It Clean Malibu’ and #StrawlessOcean’” will be given out. The city also has reusable straws available for pickup, so long as a photo is posted on social media using the hashtags ‘MalibuForAStrawlessOcean’ and ‘KeepitCleanMalibu.’

On Saturday, March 24, City of Malibu invites residents and businesses to observe “Earth Hour” by turning off lights for an hour, from 8:30-9:30 p.m.

For its Library Speaker Series, City of Malibu partnered with Pepperdine University’s Climate Calling Conference to host Paul Hawken, an environmental advocate and author, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11, at the university’s Elkins Auditorium.
