Event description
Introducing: kolektif by 4ocean. An all new 4ocean cleanup experience!

About this Event

Join the 4ocean Outreach and Education Teams for a day dedicated to ocean conservation! kolektif by 4ocean is a new kind of event- a combination of education and awareness giving you the tools needed to help fight the ocean plastic crisis. Take part in the kolektif by 4ocean along with local conservation organizations in Boca Raton's Spanish River Park on December 14th with a beach cleanup, discussion panels, food trucks and more!

What to expect:

-Start the morning off with FREE yoga on the beach from 9am to 10am. Please bring a yoga mat or beach towel.

-Join the Clean Ocean Movement by participating in the two hour beach cleanup as we tackle the microplastics and marine debris on the shoreline. Cleanup supplies (hemp bags + gloves) will be provided for everyone. Cleaning will take place from 10am to 11:45am with a group photo at the end! Community service forms will be provided after the cleanup in the Check-In Tent on the beach.

-After seeing first-hand what is affecting the ocean, learn more about how to be a part of the solution in our largest 4ocean Village yet! We’re taking over the Southernmost lot of Spanish River Park to give the community connections to organizations, artists, and hands-on activities all with a focus on ocean conservation. Raise your awareness, get educated, and be inspired by the opportunities that are out there combating the ocean plastic crisis.

-"Tide Talks" will take place in the 4ocean Village with presentations from local conservation leaders, hosted by the 4ocean Education Team.

- A water station provided by the City of Boca Raton. Bring your reusable bottle and stay hydrated without the single-use plastic.

-Cleaning the beach can work up an appetite. We’ll have sustainable food trucks and vendors with breakfast and lunch options for sale in the park.

-Enjoy live music in the Blue Bungalow where you can chat with 4ocean employees and learn more about what it’s like working for the world’s largest ocean cleanup company.

-The 4ocean Pop-Up Shop will be open during the event featuring exclusive merchandise and new 4ocean Lifestyle products that promote sustainability. Give the gift of a clean ocean to your loved ones with any of our pound-pulling products- just in time for the holidays!

-Missed the beach cleanup? No worries! We’ll have the new Sorting Table in the 4ocean Education Tent where you and the kids can sort through and learn more about the top 5 most commonly found items at cleanups.

-A Closing Presentation will highlight the marine debris collected during the beach cleanup. These items will be sorted through and counted by the team of 4ocean Citizen Scientists. All of the trash and recycling will be brought back to our facilities to be properly handled or disposed of.

-Registration for this event is required for all who wish to attend. Check-in will be located in the park and on the beach. No need to print your ticket, just have the email ready on your phone.

-FREE parking until 1:00pm in Spanish River Park. Overflow parking will be in Ocean Strand Park with free shuttles to Spanish River.
