In honor of Earth Day, members of The Agency family stepped away from their desks and showings to clean up the Santa Monica shoreline. Sporting their Agency swag, the cleanup crew kicked off the day at the famed Santa Monica Pier and covered 2.6 miles of coastline, removing a staggering 127 pounds of trash from the beach. We were proud to partner with MOTEV, which plants a tree for every booking, and provided our team with transportation to the beach.

While Earth Day is a great excuse to break out the gloves and trash bags, The Agency is committed to extending its efforts throughout the year, and we look forward to hosting more beach cleanups and community outreach initiatives in the months ahead.
