#ShadesDaddyGives: Making Our Oceans Cleaner – Charity Of The Month – Surfrider Foundation
This month, April 2016, starting on April 26th-30th, we will donate part of all order proceeds to the SurfRider Foundation. Our oceans are one, if not, the greatest precious resource we have on this planet which feeds billions of people – we must protect it.
“Improving coastal water quality has been one of the Surfrider Foundation’s top priorities over the last 30 years. Our Clean Water Initiative strives to protect our water resources and prevent pollution from reaching the ocean.
Ocean pollution is a serious problem. What is in our ocean water affects both the health of beachgoers and the sea creatures we love. For example, over 20,000 swim advisories and beach closures are issued every year to protect the health of beachgoers across the U.S. It’s unacceptable that a day at the beach could result in stomach flu, skin rashes, pinkeye, respiratory infections or worse.
Through Surfrider’s clean water programs, Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) and Ocean Friendly Gardens (OFG), we keep hundreds of millions of gallons of polluted water from entering our ocean and waterways daily. Our programs educate the public on better ways to landscape your yard to reduce the pollution entering the ocean.”
The surfrider foundation has chapeters in many parts of the world and is a well known and respected charity organization with its focus on our oceans around the globe. You can view more info on the SurfRider Foundation here.
