Surfider Foundation Global and Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter are working together to promote Ocean Friendly Gardens in order to reduce the dry season runoff in San Diego County through conservation, permeability and retention in our gardens. Another way to protect our oceans is by reducing marine debris, through recycling and reducing our use of plastics. One type plastics that may not be recyclable in many areas is that found in plastic pots. A project of the Missouri Botanical Garden is turning recycled pots into landscape timbers.
