Let's Clean Up Our Shores

We are big fans of keeping our oceans and shorelines clean, so when West Marine sent us the following announcement about their clean up initiative, we decided to share it with you immediately.

Yes, we recognize the fact that West Marine is partially using this to get people to come into their stores, but we do appreciate any effort to clean up our beaches.

West Marine encourages everyone to participate in International Coastal Cleanup Day

WATSONVILLE, Calif. – Sept. 11, 2019 – Between producing more than half of the earth’s oxygen to providing a place for the activities we love, the health of the ocean impacts us in more ways than imaginable. That is why on Saturday, Sept. 21, West Marine is encouraging customers to participate in International Coastal Cleanup Day in one of two ways:

Pickup a Complimentary Beach Cleanup Kit
Starting on Wednesday, Sept. 18 customers are invited to stop in any West Marine location for a complimentary beach cleanup kit. The kits are available while supplies last and includes a detailed guide on how to hold a beach cleanup in the local community as well as:
