This past weekend, Ocean Minded joined forces with our friends at the Surfrider Foundation for a weekend of beach cleanups, paddling and philanthropy. On Saturday, September 21st Ocean Minded joined the South OC Surfrider Chapter and 150 volunteers for California Coastal Cleanup Day, removing approximately 1,000 pounds of waste from entering our beautiful ocean!
Next up, on Sunday, September 22nd, Ocean Minded joined the Surfrider Foundation San Diego Chapter as a sponsor for the 22nd Annual Paddle for Clean Water. Held at the Ocean Beach Pier in San Diego, CA, hundreds of like-minded ocean enthusiasts paddled out and around the OB Pier to help raise awareness about he dangers of plastic pollution and the impacts of plastics in the marine environment.
