Thank you to my friends at Busch Systems who sent me recycle bins (and a new shirt) all the way from Ontario, Canada! We’re going to drop one set at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center this weekend and the others will be replacing my old bins.

He has a specially designed shirt that all of the proceeds made are donated to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach!
