Making a difference for our coasts is easier than you think. By giving monthly as a Coastal Protector, you will fund our network with the resources they need to fight for what we love - our ocean, waves and beaches.donate
Plastic pollution is suffocating our ocean and the many animals that call it home. Researchers estimate there are now over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean with the number continuing to grow every day. This pollution is impacting our marine ecosystems, wildlife such as seabirds, dolphins, fish, and turtles, and plastic fragments are even displacing plankton at the base of the food chain. So what’s the best way to combat this global epidemic facing our ocean? It’s simple: we need to stop the problem at its source! The Surfrider Foundation’s Ocean Friendly Restaurants program does just that. One restaurant, one customer at a time, increases awareness, drives change in behavior and ultimately creates scalable impact to reduce our plastic (and water!) footprint.
Ocean Friendly Restaurants commit to making sustainable choices for our ocean. One restaurant, one customer at a time to educate, change behaviors and reduce our plastic (and water!) footprint.
