eWaste Event at Torrey Hills Center Draws Large Numbers

If you have old electronics that you want to get rid of in an environmentally friendly way, you can stop by the back parking lot of the Torrey Hills Center in Carmel Valley once every three months on the last Saturday of the month.  These events are a great turn out and half of the profit goes to I Love a Green California.

I Love a Green California is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to engaging students and the California community in obtaining global awareness of individual, local, and world health and sustainability.  The purpose of ilagca is to unite students, organizations, and the community in environmental sustainability.  Ilagc’s focus is on creating a forum in which members can learn from one another create leadership opportunities establish a centralized body to gather and circulate relevant information regarding environmentalism to educate students and greater community on sustainability and organize community events.  It is ilagca’s mission to create leaders for green awareness and promote global responsibility.  “Our goals are achieved through grassroots efforts, community involvement, education, and humanitarian efforts.  We engage in projects that strive to conserve, preserve and/ or enhance the quality of the environment.”

You can recycle cell phones, laptops, computers, crt’s, plasmas, televisions, lcd monitors, printers, notebooks, stereo systems, speakers, telephones, dvd players, servers, server racks, plotters, uninterruptible power supplies, car batteries, and cords and wires. The entire inventory is tested and if possible reused to extend the life of it to its full potential. The Carmel Valley area has some of the best turnouts when it comes to these events and everyone should be a part of them.

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Santiago Benito | Junior Creative DirectorName: Santiago Benito

School: Canyon Crest Academy

Dream: Santiago hopes to one day become a documentary film director and producer.  He also hopes to write and make Hollywood films.

Interests:  He enjoys reading almost as much as he enjoys writing; my favorite book is The Life of Pi by Yann Martel.  Santiago have had an interest in the art of cinema ever since he could remember.  From an early age, Santiago has been mesmerized by the beauty of the lines said and the actors on the big screen.  While many kids have a hard time trying to figure out what they want to do after they get out of school, Santiago knew right off the bat that he wanted to be involved in the world of cinema somehow.  Aside from that, he enjoys playing basketball and spending time with family and friends.  In addition, Santiago is very interested in being involved in things much larger than himself.  For example, he is a part of many non-profit organizations whose goals are to help people and communities all over the world (i.e. Japan, Africa, and the Untied States).

Journey: He was born in San Diego on August 14, 1998 and has had a wonderful life growing up in the Carmel Valley area.
