Red Tide: A turning point for Florida's beaches

When you think of Florida, what comes to your mind?

Do you imagine white sandy beaches and clear green-blue water with dolphins and manatees glittering the coastline?

While most of our focus on the cleanup had to do with raising awareness on the effects of plastic pollution, we couldn’t help but notice that the abundance of “Red Tide” was just as much of a concern for locals and attendees as pollution.

Teaming up with Oceanic Global: Inspiring Sustainable Tourism

Sea Going Green is excited to officially announce its partnership with the Oceanic Global Foundation! As part of our collaboration, we are proud to be ambassadors of their eco-certified sticker system, which we will be using to reward our partners and clients in the tourism and hospitality industries on their sustainable efforts.

Our collaborative new guide will focus on making marine and coastal hotspots more sustainable. The idea for our guide and new sticker system is to incentivize formative change within the tourism industry by providing solutions to environmental challenges. These include plastic pollution, socio-cultural integration, marine conservation, limiting carbon footprints in addition to many more.
