Litter-free Long Beach all-stars
   Litter-Free Long Beach is
the city’s campaign to keep
Long Beach streets, alleys,
parks, school grounds, every-
where, clean and litter-free.
   The campaign includes a
creative education and out-
reach effort—“Lunch with a
Lizard”—a 20-minute, educa-
tional performance designed
to teach the next generation
of adults about the impor-
tance of litter abatement and
environmental stewardship.
Each performance features
two characters, a host and her
lively friend, the Long Beach
Litter-free Lizard.
   Since September 2006,
“Lunch with a Lizard” has
been presented to 22 elemen-
tary schools in Long Beach,
