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 InstagramTwitter, 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.
