Thanks David. The notoriety is greatly appreciated. With the unparalleled 2.0 support of Eric Chevalier, my ZT partner, the movement has been taken to a new level in Laguna Beach and beyond.

This is an excellent example of how Social Media can help create a buzz around something. I wish there was something like that in the UK - I go to my local park and end up picking up all the rubbish (trash) by myself. It really annoys me that people can't just pick up after themselves I just don't understand it.

David, Thank you for sharing this. What a great example for how non-profit organizations can use Facebook! I shared it with my non-profit beach client -- The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (www.asbpa.org) -- they loved the example!

With some creativity and passion, it just shows you the power social media tools can behold! Thanks for the post. I haven't been to Laguna in years but am looking forward to visiting one of my favorite places and knowing how it's being kept clean.
