How Green is Your Garden?


Surfrider initiated the Ocean Friendly Gardens Program (OFG) to help its members and the general public take some steps at their own homes to clean and prevent pollution reaching the ocean and start to restore urban watersheds. Water leaving residential and other developed sites can carry away and/or pick up pollutants on its journey to the ocean. This urban runoff has become the #1 source of ocean pollution. For example, every dryday in Los Angeles County, 300 million gallons of water runs off our landscapes, buildings and streets and into the ocean!
