One of our first projects was to work with Save the Redwoods to sponsor a grove at the Forest of Nisene Marks, a place that was literally Coco’s backyard for several years. She hiked and climbed trees there, swam in a place she called “Mermaid’s Cove” and even released native frogs that she raised from tiny tadpoles. That’s why we can’t think of a better way to honor her young life than by naming a redwood grove for her in this park she loved, where we spent so much time as a family. Together, we have preserved a beautiful redwood grove in her name, where generations of children can come to enjoy–and visit her memory in this very special place. Visit the grove.
Participating in beach cleanups was something that Coco and her family did regularly. Now, our foundation works with Save Our Shores, hosting three beach cleanups at Seacliff State Beach each year. In 2020, Live Like Coco became one of the sponsors of Coco’s home beach, where we collected more than 117 pounds of trash and recycling.
Through Terracycle, we recycle both pens and markers, as well as dental hygiene products, In 2020, we shipped Terracycle more than 100 pounds of pens, markers, toys, toothbrushes and beauty products. Looking for local drop-off? You can recycle pens and markers with us, and your used toothbrushes at Ethos in Capitola Village.
