Post-Surf Ritual

#PostSurfBeachClean

 

Many of us have a pre-surf ritual… Waxing our boards, stretching and moving, listening to our favourite tune… Many are simply frothing to get out there. But what is your post-surf ritual? 

 

 The Challenge

 

Our challenge is simple: a post-surf plastic pickup. Take a walk, spend 5 mins picking up plastic (look closely for tiny pieces of plastics, they’re there!), take a snap, and share.

If everyone did this, it would make a big difference. We need your help in spreading the word.

Post-Surf Gratitude: Give Back to The Ocean

Post-surf gratitude is something we all experience in some form. Many people do a plastic pick up already. If you don’t, we encourage you to join the movement.

Think of it as an ocean tax: we all have a responsibility to pay our taxes, and we all have a responsibility to take care of our environment. Plus, who doesn’t love beachcombing?

There are already some incredible initiatives out there making a huge impact on changing the public’s habits both on and beyond the beach. Join the evergrowing community of people encouraging environmental consciousness and saying thanks to mother ocean.

How it Works

It’s simple. Take a walk along the beach, spend 5 mins or longer combing for microplastics, take a snap and share. 

Take a moment

Stop and be in the moment. Take in the beauty of the sea

Look Closer for Tiny Pieces of Plastic

 

Plastic doesn’t break down. Ever. Plastic breaks up into smaller pieces, which break up into tiny pieces. These tiny pieces can be eaten by wildlife and enter the food chain. Microplastics (any piece of plastic an inch in size or less) are now recognized as a major threat to wildlife and to human health. Scientific research surveys have revealed that microplastics are widespread throughout the world’s oceans, and are having a negative impact on marine life, as well as the health of humans who rely on seafood as a staple protein source.

Be Creative

A picture tells a thousand words. Whether you’re on the beach, on the water, or under the water. Find a creative way to inspire others and share.

 Keep it Blue

To share the contrast of your findings, be sure to include the ocean in the background – or get even in the water!

Help Turn the Tide

Refuse single-plastic, reuse where you can, and always recycle. Encourage environmental consciousness and share your small-everyday-actions that help make a difference. 

Why Get Involved?

We, as ocean lovers, are in or near the sea at every opportunity. We get to see the impact that plastic pollution has on our marine environment.

 

It’s estimated that 20 million tonnes of plastic end up in our oceans every year. With an estimated 5.25 trillion plastic particles floating around in the world’s oceans.

 

Plastics absorb harmful chemicals on each surface every time they break up. Marine plastic debris has impacted over 600 marine species from the bottom to the top of the food chain.
