The END: A Plastic-Free Celebration

Oceanic Global’s NYC and Hamptons Hub joined forces to help END plastic pollution!

In honor of Plastic Free July, Oceanic Global’s NYC and Hamptons Hub joined forces to co-host THE END: A Plastic-Free Celebration in Montauk!

The day was filled with activities inspired by caring deeply for our oceans, including surf lessons, a beach cleanup, and an auction cocktail party.

The event was a huge success, with over 200 people attending the festivities and more than 50 pounds of trash collected during the beach cleanup!

SURF LESSONS

Surf Hamptons has a goal to grow the Hamptons surf community together and teach everyone how to respect the ocean. Hosting Surf Lessons to END Plastic Pollution was the perfect opportunity to spread the love for surfing while celebrating Plastic Free July.

If we don’t take care of our beaches, we won’t have anywhere to surf – it’s that simple! The surf lessons were also presented by The Breitenbach Advisory Team of Compass Real Estate.

BEACH CLEANUP

Oceanic Global‘s Hub and Pasta Life—the makers of the first-ever gluten-free pasta drinking straw—joined forces to say pasta la vista to ocean plastic pollution by co-hosting a beach cleanup. In the end, over 50 pounds of trash were collected!

COCKTAIL PARTY

Oceanic Global’s Hubs teamed up with Hero Beach Club, Hamptons Magazine, and The Breitenbach Advisory Team of Compass, to kick-off Oceanic-Global’s first-ever auction to END Plastic Pollution! The auction was accessible to all virtually through ChairtyBuzz, but there was also an in-person cocktail event to celebrate the festivities, which included delicious bites, refreshing cocktails, and live music.

A collection of items from sustainable brands, such as GOTBAG, Solid + Striped, FIN Montauk, Raw Elements Sunscreen and more, were available onsite for raffle. The digital auction featured unique experiences, like a private sunset tour of the Montauk Oceans Institute Lighthouse with Oceanic Global Ambassador Gaelin Rosenwaks; inspiring visual art pieces from the likes of the renowned mural and graffiti artist, Lance Johnson; a swim clinic from Olympic swimmer, Elizabeth Beisel; and so much more!
