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.
