Pack Your Trash
Pack Your Trash Was born of PPNF.
Pleasure Point Night Fighters (est. 1919) reformed in 1981. Conti and Phillips's surf club the PPSA (Pleasure Point Surfing Association) always focused on public service with Plant Our Parks, and other eco-initiatives. Pack Your Trash a natural step towards protecting the fragile coast line. So Jimmy Came up with the slogan Pack Your Trash + "the Geek" and proceed to make history when surf legend Jack O'Neil agreed to pay for the first run of bumper stickers. (These stickers continue to hold together locals cars across the Pacific.)
The Geek surfs, skates, snowboards, and now paddles a canoe in the sea and the rivers!
Freakette (lady counterpart to the Geek, designed by Jimbo Phillips) rides a paddleboard.
Don't be a Geek or a Freak and toss your rubbish! Pack Your Trash!
Pack Your Trash continues to be a global force in environmentalism.
