Encinitas Environmental Day 2011


The Tomoe Project participated in the 5th Annual Encinitas Environment Day on June 5th. We set up a booth to sell our donation goods to continue in our efforts to raise money for the Japan Relief effort.

Our neighbors were Kids For Peace, a co-ed group similar to Boy/Girl Scouts that works for peace through cross-cultural service. They provided an opportunity for people to make cards for kids in Japan. As time passes from the tragedy in Japan, we want to remind everyone that help is still needed. We’re happy to join in Kids for Peace’s effort!

Rallying our community of volunteers, Team Tomoe worked to support the local Encinitas Community throughout the course of the day. We became experts in paper making, composting and pedal powered smoothies, and flexed our muscles to help in clearing out the park at the end of the day.

Our own Shinya Uekusa and his Cal State San Marcos colleague, Abraham Marquez, presented on the social repercussions of water quality problems in Imperial County.

We are so happy to be involved in our local Encinitas Community where many of us live, surf and play. Thanks for having us!
