Almost 100 volunteers spent their Saturday morning picking up over 95 pounds of trash from the beach over the course of two hours. Much of this was plastic litter that could have stayed in our marine environment for generations. A majority of the items collected were cigarette butts (800) and plastic food wrappers (113).
Everyone who participated received a pair of shoes from our 4Earth by Blowfish Malibu collection as a thank you.
These events are, hands down, some of our favorites we get to do as a brand. There’s nothing better than getting to meet and see our local community come out and do good for the planet. We love talking to everyone about our 4Earth collection and what we’re doing through our Making Waves Campaign. To date, through the 4Earth project, we have repurposed over 1 million plastic bottles and have donated over $100k to Oceana, an organization that is dedicated to cleaning the world’s oceans! We are so grateful to be able to partner with such amazing organizations and brands that are committed to being socially and environmentally responsible.
Stay tuned for more beach clean ups with Blowfish Malibu in 2022!
