Volunteers from Ocean Blue Project are working to protect local waterways by putting burlap bags filled with a substrate of coffee grounds and straw in drainage areas where mushroom roots, called mycelium, can work to break down a variety of pollutants in the water including oil, pesticides and bacteria like E. coli.
