The recreational spaces of Orange County are all gorgeous. Between the parks and beaches, there are so many destinations that are perfect for doing a whole lot of nothing. To ensure these locations stay pristine, The Eco-Warrior Foundation along with Chronic Tacos are hosting a massive beach clean up effort. The call for volunteers comes with a sponsored lunch from the OC-based taco chain. Coupling the satisfaction of some hard work with the ability to enjoy a day in the sand makes for a quality Saturday afternoon. The scenery is among the best and who can turn own a free taco?
