4ocean's NYC World Oceans Day Celebration

 

Join the 4ocean Outreach Team as we celebrate World Oceans Day on Sunday, June 9th from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM at Rockaway Beach Park! This family-friendly event will take place the plaza at the intersection of Beach 94th Street and Shore Front Parkway just minutes from the Beach 98th Street - Playland and Beach 90th Street Holland Stations.

We’ll start the morning off with an encouraging message from the 4ocean founders, Alex and Andrew, before going out to clean along Rockaway Beach. Before or after the beach cleanup, you’ll have the chance to walk through the 4ocean Village and learn from local environmental organizations as well as the UN Friends of World Oceans Day. This event will also be your chance to shop in New York’s very first 4ocean Pop-Up Shop with exclusive apparel!

Help us keep 4ocean events plastic-free: bring your reusable water bottle to keep yourself hydrated and we’ll have water stations available for refills. Gloves and hemp bags will be provided for everyone to use during the cleanup. Students in need of community service hours can receive a letter to document up to 2 hours of work, after the event.

——> Please RSVP here: www.4ocean.com/Rockaway.

We'll see you all there, ready to join the movement in New York!
