With chapters and clubs all over the world, for 34 years the Surfrider Foundation has had a global impact for good. Without a healthy planet, there can be no people. The environmental non-profit works to ensure clean water, healthy oceans and coastlines, and accessible beaches for all those who love water and surf. In 2019, Surfrider Foundation helped Youth To The People organize our first west coast beach cleanup, where our team cleared tens of pounds of single-use plastic, cigarette butts, and waste from Venice Beach. At Youth To The People, we believe that utilizing glass bottles is only part of the equation— alone, it isn’t enough. Moving away from a throwaway culture, working hard at cleaning up what’s already been discarded, carefully considering the choices that move us closer to being a zero-waste company, and not being afraid to work up a sweat are all part of our long term strategy.
