Thinking Outside the Box

Are you the organizer of your local farmer’s market?  Is your neighborhood council planning an autumn resource fair? Are you helping a local rescue group host a dog adoption event? Would you like to have free City of Los Angeles Stormwater Program outreach materials at an upcoming community event? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our Booth in a Box program is for you, and we’d love to hear from you!

Here’s how our Booth in a Box program works. We coordinate with event organizers to develop a tailor-made assortment of outreach materials ranging from brochures and tip cards to posters and pens to coloring books and stickers to be distributed at the event. We’ll even throw in a table cloth, literature holders and appropriate signage to give the table a polished, professional look! In return for the free outreach materials, the event organizer identifies a volunteer to sit at the table and distribute the outreach materials to the event attendees. Get started today! It’s as simple as:

  1. Identify a volunteer to sit at the table and distribute materials.
  2. Review our online library and decide which outreach materials would be most appropriate for your event attendees.
  3. Contact us at to request the items you need for the event.

It’s a win-win. We get our outreach materials out to the public and you get important environmental information to people attending your event– all at no cost to the City or event organizers. Now that’s thinking outside the box!

    I am a zero waste consultant and often do presentations at local elementary schools. I am a volunteer for the Surfrider foundations Rise above plastics campaign and would love to be able to present the connection between ocean pollution and our city streets.
