The Surfrider Foundation
We are so thankful for amazing foundations such as Surfrider. They strive for a better future and care so much for our planet. That is why for the month of July, we are donating 10% of our Ocean Lovers Variety Set sales to the Surfrider Foundation! So go buy yourself some Ocean Lover wraps and help out Surfrider!
The Surfrider Foundation is "a grassroots non-profit coastal protection organization with a mission that is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our oceans, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network" -Surfrider Foundation. They inspire so many community members to get out there and clean up our shorelines and work towards a cleaner planet. The foundation originated in Malibu, CA, and has since then grown to start clubs in over 15 countries and cultivate a massive volunteer base of keen individuals around the world.
So far in 2021 alone, The Surfrider Foundation has removed a growing total of 57,663 pounds of trash from our beaches. In 2020, they removed 80,560 pounds of trash total! They have these statistics from the past 7 years of beach cleanups posted on their website. They have also shown exactly how many pieces of each kind of trash they have found. These are super interesting statistics and I highly recommend checking them out. Here is the link to this super educational webpage, go check it out! https://cleanups.surfrider.org/results/
