Venice Beach is world-famous for being the playground by the sea for Southern Californians. With the Venice Beach Boardwalk being the second most-visited destination in Southern California, hosting an average of ten million visitors each year, the team members and friends from Boxed Water, Hotel Erwin, Alaska Airlines, Art of Tea, SkinnyDipped, Joseph and Alexander Swimwear and Jeni's Ice Cream will meet in person on June 11th to get their hands dirty and clean this celebrated SoCal spot. These brands and the people behind them understand the importance of leading and participating in community events that will leave Venice better than they found it. Boxed Water encourages people to clean up treasured locations in their own local communities this World Oceans Day.
"Partnering with Boxed Water has been pivotal in continuing to keep our oceans clean and spreading awareness regarding the pollution of our beaches," said Richard Arterbury, founder of Ocean Blue Project. "To date, our organization has removed more than 240,000 pounds of microplastics from beaches, and Boxed Water has helped make those efforts a reality. They can provide other brands the framework to help host essential beach cleanups."
Boxed Water pledged to clean 3,000 miles around the country with the Ocean Blue Project, helping to ensure that the plastic from beaches does not end up in our oceans. A heartbreaking 8.8 million metric tons of plastic wind up in our oceans and beaches every year, making World Oceans Day a critical day to bring awareness to this harsh reality. Plastics have infiltrated all parts of our planet and lives; in fact, plastic has been found in the deepest parts of the ocean to within human blood and lung tissue for the first time ever. While the Big Plastic and Big Oil industries are being investigated on deceptive plastic recycling rates, many other brands and individuals are striving to stop the damage. Brands like Boxed Water and Alaska Airlines, who have partnered to remove 1.8 million pounds of plastic annually from in-flight water service.
