Celebrate World Oceans Day

West Marine is proud to support World Oceans Day

This "Earth Day for the oceans" was started on June 8, 2003 with the goal of expanding awareness of the importance of protecting our oceans and large bodies of water.

Why is protecting our oceans so important? According to worldoceansday.org the ocean generates most of the oxygen we breathe, helps feed us, regulates our climate, cleans the water we drink, offers us a pharmacopoeia of potential medicines and provides limitless inspiration! From our perspective, it’s arguably the coolest place to fish, boat, kayak, surf, paddleboard, dive and sail!

West Marine is dedicated to spreading the word and helping raise awareness of World Oceans Day as part of our BlueFuture® initiatives, and by working together, we can help to create a sustainable future for our planet. World Oceans Day is just one step in engaging our customers and associates in conversations and actions that can fulfill our company’s sustainability goals.
