Celebrate Earth Day with Ocean First

By OceanFirst on 4/20/16

At the core of Ocean First is the desire to use our business as a force for good. At the end of the day, we are firm believers that we do not inherit our planet from our ancestors, but borrow it from our children and everything we do reflects this custodial sentiment. 

From the types of shampoos we provide to the paint on our walls, we have analyzed almost every aspect of the business to see how we can make the most earth-friendly choices, which in-turn allows YOU to feel good about your choice to be our customers.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 

We carefully consider the destination of everything that gets discarded at Ocean First. Through a helpful training session from Ecocycle, our staff is up to date on how to choose between the landfill, compost, and recycle bins. (Did you know you can't recycle plastic containers that are less than two inches tall?)

We also go the unconventional route to give waste a second life. Shipping material such as plastic bags and packing foam are collected and recycled at CHaRM (the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials). Other items such as broken goggles are donated to RAFT (Resource Area for Teachers).

Blue Initiatives 

Our newly installed motion-sensor sink and energy efficient hand dryers are just a few of the ways that we have optimized our facility to be as green (or in our case, blue) as possible. Read more about our Blue Initiatives on our website. 

Education is Key

Download a FREE activity book from Ocean First Education. This is a wonderful interactive way for elementary students to learn about the ocean and how they can make a difference.
