There’s no shortage of ocean issues to confront, plastic pollution is one of them. 🙅🏼♀️ In an effort to educate and inspire the surf community (and global ocean enthusiasts) to engage in the fight to protect our oceans — @wsl in partnership with Corona and Parley implemented a plastic conscious philosophy during the Corona J-Bay event.
No plastic bottles, cutlery, or bags were available on site — glass bottles, wooden cutlery, and re-usable tote bags were provided instead. 👌🏻 The wave in the picture (made out of 2 litre plastic bottles found in the ocean) served as a meaningful (and rather cool) reminder to develop more responsible behaviors when it comes to single-use plastic.
Now, more than ever, the ocean needs our help and each one of us has the opportunity to participate in community-generated ocean-friendly initiatives and to collaborate with existing ocean-aware organizations to protect marine health (and to preserve our ocean, beaches, & waves). 🌊
