World Oceans Day is June 8

Businesses

Some businesses are sponsoring shoreline cleanups across the country. Many businesses have linked with us on LinkedIn on our Oceans Day for Businesses page. If your company is sponsoring a World Oceans Day event please let us know and we will post it on the Events page. If your company is hosting an event for employees only, we also salute you and will post your company name as thank you.

Please email; Board (at) WorldOceansDay.ca


STEPS EACH BUSINESS CAN TAKE TO HELP OUR OCEANS & WATERWAYS:

1. Encourage water conservation

2. Recycle and reuse

3. Host a shoreline clean up, make a party for your staff and suppliers and/or open it to the public. We will post details under our Events Tab and your local media will help let the public know. (We can help you with a media contact list). We will post a photo of the event too.

4. Encourage suppliers and staff to follow our Sustainable Seafood Tips and 11 Solutions to help our Oceans (both are found under our Education Resource Tab)

5. Encourage suppliers and staff to become an Ocean Hero, a protector of our waterways, oceans & marine life (information is under our In Action Tab).
