2019 World Oceans Day Fundraiser

Clean Ocean Access (COA) is excited to host the 3rd Annual World Oceans Day fundraiser! World Oceans Day is an annual observation to honor, protect, and conserve the world's oceans. The celebration provides an opportunity to take personal and community action to conserve the ocean and its resources.

COA's 3rd annual World Ocean Day fundraiser celebrates efforts to promote environmental stewardship in Rhode Island and fosters local initatives that support a larger global movement to protect the health of our oceans.

The celebration will take place on Thursday, June 6th at Easton’s Beach Rotunda from 6:00 to 9:00PM. The event will include live music, catered dinner and drinks, as well as a silent auction and the presentation of the third “CLEAN OCEAN ACCESS MISSION2.OCEAN AWARD” to an outstanding COA volunteer.

Prior to the event, there will be a cleanup at Easton’s (First) Beach from 4:00 to 5:00PM. The cleanup and fundraiser are both in celebration of the international World Oceans Day event, and help bring awareness to COA’s goals of eliminating marine debris, improving coastal water quality and protecting and preserving shoreline access.

UN-Designated Theme: Gender & Oceans

Conservation Focus: Demonstrate leadership in preventing plastic pollution and share solutions that inspire and activate the global community.

Join on us on the shores of the Purdy Spirit once again to celebrate our 2nd Annual World Ocean Day Beach Cleanup. Last year’s cleanup was such a ripple that it has inspired numerous efforts involving continuous cleanup relief and a platform to educate the community about ocean pollution.

We have to account for all humans involved in our efforts for safety and liability reasons. Thanks for playing safe and keeping it real so we can continue fun, earthly gatherings like these.

A journey towards a less polluted ocean

Ocean pollution is not just found on the surface, it is even penetrating the very deepest parts of the ocean. ‘In fact, the Mariana Trench is surprisingly polluted for being so remote. The trash on the seabed is just a visible reminder of what human activities are doing to the ocean.’ 

Whether you’re an ocean lover and spend all your available time in it, or you’re just a person who wants to protect our planet for our future generations, there are quite a few ways in which we can change our daily lives and help save our oceans:

1. Use Reusable Bottles

If you have a habit of buying water bottles, then why not try using a reusable one. That way the one-off plastic you buy won’t end up in the ocean.

2. Never Use Cosmetics That Contain Microbeads

Microbeads are little plastic balls that are found in various skin products that help to exfoliate the skin, however, these minuscule balls do not biodegrade and get flushed out into the ocean. Sadly they often get mistaken for food by marine life and end up making them extremely sick as well as leaking into our food chain.

3. Become An Advocate

Some individuals do not understand the extent of the damage that we are doing to our planet, because of this, these people continue about their daily lives dumping plastic into normal landfill sites, which usually gets deposited out at sea. If you explain to these people just how dangerous ocean pollution is and explain how it can affect mankind as well as marine life, they will hopefully start making small changes to their lives.

4. Join a Beach or River Clean Up

Beach clean ups and river clean-ups are happening all over the world, all you have to do is check one of the eventshere and get going. This is a great way for you as an individual to make a difference to the planet.
