3 Things to Do with HtB This Week
Friends don’t let friends use plastic bags. And this holiday season, Heal the Bay will reward your friends who go plastic-free.
- As part of A Day Without a Bag on December 20, take a picture of yourself, your friends, or a stranger (with their permission, of course) using their reusable bags to enter our contest! Catch your friends in the act and post it to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the hashtag #RockinReusables and tag @HealtheBay to enter. Winners will receive a limited edition Heal the Bay A Day Without a Bag T-shirt, $100 Vons gift card, as well as other great prizes. Contest ends at 5 p.m. on December 20, and winners will be announced on December 21.
- Come meet Green Santa at Olvera Street noon-1 p.m. on December 20 and maybe you’ll be among the lucky recipients of reusable bags containing “golden tickets” redeemable for $25 Vons/Pavilions gift cards. Can’t make it to Olvera Street? You can still be a winner. We’re hosting dozens of other sites, from Chinatown to Venice, to give away and promote reusable bags. Check this map of all giveaway sites.
- Join us for an evening of spa treatments at Alchemie Spa in Santa Monica. Fifteen minute mini-treatments are $35 in advance or $40 at the door with a reservation by phone (310-310-8880). Choose from a mini organic manicure, brow and lip wax, hand and foot scrub, chair massage, or mini-sage. Purchase tickets online: select an entrance-only ticket ($10) or a ticket with mini-treatment ($35). Alchemie Spa is generously donating 100% of the entrance charge, raffle tickets and auction plus 15% of the mini treatments.
