Greenprint Look for this little greenprint logo (pictured to the right) on clothes that are part of Roxy’s eco-initiative called Greenprint. They are made with earth-friendly materials, like organic cotton (grown pesticide-free) and recycled bottle fleece (every jacket made from recycled PET
fleece uses about 25 plastic bottles).

Full Force at Save Trestles Hearing

Around 3,000 people came out to show their support for the Save Trestles hearing at the Del Mar Fairgrounds yesterday. The place was packed. Supporters gave the "thumbs up" to save the park and stop the toll road.

Groms were there too showing their support. They were from Wild Coast, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving coastal ecosystems and coastlines through grassroots support.

A solution for the traffic problem? Widen the 5! Not build a new road through a state park. Now there’s a novel idea. Pearls of wisdom on these signs. The only people supporting the toll road at the hearing were the people who were being paid to be there.

Now we will have to wait for the Secretary of Commerce’s decision. He will make his decision between October 24, 2008 and January 7, 2009.
