It's no secret that our oceans are facing significant challenges, and it's crucial for all of us to play our part in protecting them. That's why we're thrilled to share with you how EBB & FLO is actively making a difference not only on World Ocean Day but also throughout the year. As part of our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), we're dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of ocean conservation and taking concrete actions to create positive change. Here are some of the initiatives we're proud to be a part of:
- Volunteering and Education: At EBB & FLO, our founder, Toni, passionately volunteers her time and expertise to work with local schools and organisations. She's involved in educating and inspiring on various topics, including business, tourism, conservation, geography, and science. Toni has also been instrumental in developing educational resources on plastic pollution and delivering workshops in schools and at the local beach, raising awareness about ocean conservation among students and the community.
- Community Beach Cleans: Since our brand's inception in 2017, Toni has been organising and coordinating Community Beach Cleans. These events bring the community together, fostering a sense of environmental stewardship and inspiring others to take action. By cleaning up our beaches, we prevent plastic and other debris from entering the ocean and harming marine life.
- Support for People with Disabilities: EBB & FLO is proud to collaborate with Zebdee, an inclusive performing arts and talent agency. Together, we're working on an environmental project to educate and raise awareness about environmental issues among people with disabilities. Our commitment to inclusivity extends beyond ocean conservation, as we believe in making a positive impact in all aspects of the community.
- Corporate Beach Clean Activities: We offer Corporate Beach Clean activities to support other businesses in achieving their social responsibility or environment, social, and governance goals. By sharing our knowledge, resources, and expertise, we aim to inspire and encourage other businesses to make a positive impact on their local communities and the environment.
- Commitment to Positive Change: At EBB & FLO, we firmly believe in the power of collaboration and working together to create positive change. We're immensely proud of the work we've accomplished in our community and are grateful for the opportunity to give back.
- Collaborations with Ocean Conservation Organisations: We actively collaborate with reputable ocean conservation organisations, such as Surfers Against Sewage, to support their initiatives and raise awareness about critical ocean issues. By partnering with these organisations, we contribute to their conservation efforts and help amplify their message, reaching a broader audience.
- Donations to Ocean Conservation: As part of our unwavering commitment to ocean conservation, we allocate a portion of our profits to support organisations like the SAS 250 Club. These donations fund crucial research, conservation projects, and advocacy efforts aimed at addressing pressing ocean conservation challenges.
- Charitable Collaborations: EBB & FLO proudly supports like-minded charitable causes that work towards a sustainable future. Through collaborations such as the 2 Minute Beach Clean station, the Nurdle initiative, and Pollu Toys, we empower individuals, educate children, and actively combat plastic pollution.
- Carbon Removal Efforts: We partner with organisations like Eden Reforestation Projects to combat climate change. Through tree-planting initiatives, we offset carbon emissions and contribute to the restoration of forests, protecting ecosystems and supporting local communities.
- Equal Access to Blue Spaces: Our dedication to inclusivity led to the establishment of EBB & FLO COLLECTIVE CIC. This initiative aims to eliminate barriers preventing individuals from accessing Blue Spaces, ensuring that everyone can experience the transformative power of water sports and connect with our oceans.
Through these initiatives, we strive to make a positive impact on ocean conservation, raise awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans, and inspire individuals to take action for a healthier and more sustainable marine environment. Join us in our commitment to safeguarding our planet's most precious resource – the ocean. Together, we can create a brighter future for our oceans and future generations.
