LA Greensters screening at the Venice Sustainable Film Festival

We are honored to have The Venice Sustainable Film Festival & Salon screen our short film LA Greensters!

Screening will be on Sunday, October 31st, at 4pm at the Electric Lodge, followed by reception and awards.

LA’s sustainable Teamsters called LA Greensters were formed in the Summer of 2009 by Producer and now LA City Council Candidate Stephen Box and this film is the documentary about the Greensters first job on the set of the film At What Price. LA Greensters is a Rebel Without a Car Production in association with Ramblin’ Man Films, that will definitely inspire the viewer.

We are exited to have this film screened at the Electric Lodge, one of the first “solar-powered” performing arts facilities in the country.

The 4pm screening will include the Green Teamsters (LA Greensters) and other Community & Student films such as Coffee to Go, One Piece, End of Beauty, India Explains Solar Power, and
Surviving Hunger

El Nino Toy Ride

Day: Sunday, December 6th, 2009
Time: 1pm meet, 2pm ride
Place: Santa Monica Blvd. & Vermont Ave / Red Line Metro Station

A few days ago the LA Greensters were notified that St. Anne’s, a community service center in the neighborhood that helps disenfranchised young women, children and families in need will not be receiving their annual toy donations for the Christmas Party that’s coming up. Big bummer for the 150 kids this Christmas.

The party is still planned to go on and it includes the surrounding community – a community we often ride through. There’s blanket rides, burrito rides, food drives and other toy rides so we thought what is nicer than a bunch of cyclists organizing to give away a bunch of toys to a future generation of LA. Start the bond early with cycling and we’ll have more cyclists and a cleaner city. Most fittingly it works into one of the most important directives of LA’s Best Bicycle Plan: to get a generation of cyclists on the streets in LA.

Anyone can ride with us! Bring along your family, friends, neighbors. There is safety in numbers; we consider groups of cyclists as “traffic calming devices” and we will not leave you behind. If you have young children you should bring a trailer or ridealong, but; the ride will be short and paced so everyone can follow. If you have locks, helmets, lights, repair kits and water bring them along — Greensters will be available for ride support.

Everyone is encouraged to bring along an unwrapped toy or gift for children ages 0-17. We can arrange to pick up gifts and/or money donations before the ride if you cannot attend or wish to make a larger donation. If your toys are too big or too heavy for you to carry on the ride we are equipped to haul these items for you. All donations are fully tax deductible and a letter of acknowledgment will be sent to you from St. Anne’s a 501 (c)3 organization.

The LA Greensters in support with the deep and viral Los Angeles community are throwing the “El Niño, para las niñas” “the storm for the girls” toy ride to gather and deliver donations to St. Anne’s Women, Children & Families in their time of need. We want to show that riding a bicycle is about making positive change in this world while having lots of fun. It may be short notice — that is the nature of “El Niño” and I’m sure that we can come together to make a great Christmas for some kids in need.

We are riding from a major transportation hub so the ride will be accessible by train, car, bus, and by foot. We will be making some stops so you can pick up a gift along the way in East Hollywood, Wilshire Center/Koreatown, Echo Park, Silverlake, etc. We will drop the toys off at St. Anne’s and ride back to the start. We won’t be going too far and will most likely finish the ride with a stop for food and refreshments.

Transport Trees on Bikes For Schools

Check out the LA Times article about the Santee Debate Team:,0,5774015.story

Repost this and earn the Team some points:

For our second service project, the Global Debate Team will be donating trees to schools around LA by bicycle. Beginning Friday December 4th, we will transport some of the trees. This will promote two ways of reversing climate change: planting CO2-converting trees, and using alternatives to CO2-emitting cars. We hope the schools we visit with our trees will agree to replant and take care of them. We also hope they will feature us in their newspapers and blogs, as Venice High School has already agreed to do.

Venice High School is 14 and a half miles from Santee Education Complex.

We invite anyone who wants a little exercise to join us on the ride to the school along Venice Blvd.

on Friday, December 4th

leaving Santee at 11am.

For each mention in a news source or blog, we will get points in the Global Debates competition. The grand prize is a trip to the UN’s Youth Leadership Summit in the Netherlands.

If you are a blogger, school, or media outlet and wish to cover our story, or if you want to ride with us, please call Santee Debate Coaches Amber Young at (310) 256-6267 or Nick Richert at (310) 428-4222
