Ginger Taylor of Wrightsville Beach Keep It Clean presenting Blockade Runner Beach Resort with their Ocean Friendly Establishment certificate.

Plastic Ocean Project has teamed up with Surfrider Cape Fear Chapter, Wrightsville Beach Keep It Clean and Keep Brunswick County Beautiful in recognizing local restaurants as Ocean Friendly Establishments.

In an effort to reduce plastic pollution, owners and managers of certified Ocean Friendly Establishments have agreed to reduce plastic waste in their businesses and we consider each and every one a superstar. Many of the OFEs incorporate additional methods of protecting our environment and have completed an application to earn up to 5 stars for their efforts *****

This is a self-regulated initiative, and restaurants are encouraged to ensure waitstaff are educated and adhering to the initiative.

To become an Ocean Friendly Establishment, please download form (at bottom and page).  We look forward to partnering with you!
