It’s Summertime, Beaches: Angel City Brewery and the Surfrider Foundation Join Forces for a Series of Beach Cleanups Starting in May

Los Angeles, CA (May 9, 2018) — DTLA’s Angel City Brewery and the Surfrider Foundation have joined forces to host beach cleanups in a series aptly named It’s Summertime, Beaches. Beginning May 12, the organizations will work towards Surfrider’s mission of protecting the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, with events happening around the area’s seaside communities – Laguna Beach, Long Beach, Hermosa Beach, Huntington Beach, Santa Monica, LA and Ventura – running through late July. Participation is $10 and attendees are encouraged to sign up ahead of time. All cash proceeds will go directly toward the event’s respective Surfrider chapter. Participating volunteers will receive all the tools necessary to participate in the cleanup, an Angel City x Surfrider t-shirt – made of eight recycled plastic bottles – and an after-party invitation to celebrate their hard work. Attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, carpool or take public transportation to these events.

“We’re thrilled to participate in and support the Surfrider Foundation on these beach cleanup days,” said Keith McEly, Marketing & Events Manager at Angel City Brewery. “Surfrider’s mission is one that is easy for Angel City to adopt given our own environmental values. We are committed to practicing sustainable measures at the brewery as much as possible, including ending the use of paper towels and donating our spent grain to various sustainability efforts. Plus, it always helps that you don’t need a straw for beer! We’re thrilled to work alongside Surfrider for these localized efforts and create a space at these after-parties to continue those important conversations on how to further their mission.”

“With one foot on land and the other in the water, Surfrider’s focus is coastal. But it’s important for people to see that everything we do affects our ocean and waterways downstream,” said Graham Hamilton, Surfrider Foundation Los Angeles Chapter Coordinator. “We’re very excited to be partnering with Angel City, which is helping us take our mission upstream, offering Angelenos a deeper understanding of the land-to-sea connection and how we’re all part of one watershed.”
