Hundreds of Volunteers Pitch In to Collect Trash at the Troy Flowers beach cleanup

This morning in the lovely beachside town of Encinitas, California, 150 volunteers from the community dedicated their morning to helping the environment, at an event sponsored by local businessman and philanthropist Troy Flowers. During this 4 hour event, volunteers cleaned up approximately 400 pounds of trash at Encinitas beaches, including the scenic Moonlight Beach area.

“The representative from 1-800-GOT-JUNK estimated that the trash we collected was between four hundred and five hundred pounds,” Troy Flowers explained.

The family-friendly event brought together volunteers from the community and beyond, with several groups and individuals coming down from Los Angeles and Orange Country to lend a hand. Also in attendance were CEO Brad McLaughlin and his team, along with the site’s promo models, the BudTrader Babes. is the largest online medical marijuana marketplace, and is headquartered in Encinitas. McLaughlin says he wants to use the growing influence of to help his community.

“We have had so much success with legal weed advocacy, and I thought, are there other ways we can give back? I care a lot about the environment. Our campus is located right by the beach, and a lot of us surf and spend a lot of time on the beach. At BudTrader we are all about ‘going green’, and now we are going to take that to the next level!”

In addition to his work with the local environment, Troy Flowers has focused on advocating for safe access to medical marijuana across the country. Troy is also and early investor in a classified ad platform for medical marijuana patients and the “Amazon of Cannabis”.
