Sustainable Surf takes an integrated “systems thinking” approach with their innovative programs and campaigns, which engage both individuals and businesses together in partnership to solve the most pressing environmental issues facing our oceans. Specifically, they focus on reducing marine plastic pollution, climate change related impacts (ocean acidification, sea level rise and coastal erosion), and water quality issues that threaten our shared “surfing habitat.”
