If we love the beach and ocean, we need to show it. There are a number of great organizations and initiatives that are supporting the sustainability of beaches and oceans to make sure that our great-grandkids can make their own memories watching sunrises and sunsets over the water’s horizon. We have dedicated a monthly donation to Ocean Conservancy or a % of sales, whichever is largest as we launch and grow our business.
If you are considering traveling to a beach this spring or summer, consider the most popular beaches and some alternatives. You may be able to avoid the crowds and still have a great beach experience.
As you prep for your trips, be sure to check out our Beach Crasher community resources (links and posts) on our social media platforms. Join/follow us.
Our family and the Beach Crasher team will also continue to seek out opportunities to take part in local initiatives supporting our beaches as we travel and visit coastal communities. Think about this, coastal states receive about 85% of the tourist-related revenues in the U.S. It’s estimated that some 180 million Americans annually make 2 billion visits to ocean, gulf and inland beaches — more than twice as many visitors that go to all the National Park Service properties during the same period. If all of us just picked-up a couple of pieces of trash during our visits, that would be a lot of trash 🙂
