Many marine mammals are harmed or critically injured by our trash in the oceans. But Jalena found one place that's on a mission to save these creatures. The Marine Mammal Center in Northern California rescues seals, sea lions, porpoises and other injured or sick mammals and thanks to the dedication of hundreds of volunteers, they are healed, cured, rehabbed and returned to their native habitat. And some of the volunteers are concerned teens.

Ever wonder what to look for if you want to be eco-friendly with your fashions? What's available and what to look for? Is it cool? Jordan goes to The Green Festival in San Francisco to see what she can find...and to get some answers.

It's a place that's hustling and bustling all day long. It's Project Open Hand and they prepare 2600 meals everyday of the year for senior citizens and others with serious illnesses. As you can imagine, they have quite an operation and it requires a lot of energy. Brendan gets a tour to find out what they are doing to reduce their energy consumption and their carbon footprint while serving sustainable and organic meals to many in need.

Plus ideas to get you started eating healthy that are good for the planet too!
