The HB Huddle Environment Team

The HB Huddle Environment Team is a group of concerned citizens that meet to educate themselves and others about environmental issues facing the city of Huntington Beach and beyond. The group communicates with government and corporate officials to ask them to address a number of issues and participates in and plans a variety of community activities. Activities include climate change protests, tree plantings, beach clean ups, community meetings, educational events, etc. The following is a partial list of issue the group discusses and takes action on when appropriate and possible.

HB Huddle E-Team Takes Action on Single-Use Plastics

The team has drafted a letter to take to local restaurants that are using single-use plastic to-go containers. Can you help them with this project? Here’s how it works:

1) Use this link to access the letter and print a copy
(there is a preview in the image below).

2) Introduce yourself to the manager and give them the letter,
which explains dangers and alternatives to plastic.

3) Enter your interaction on this handy google doc
so we can track progress.

4) Follow-up and see if they made the switch

If you have any questions please email
