International Beach Day is September 1st
Also known as World Beach Day, Global Beach Day and National Beach Day, this is the day to share the love of the beach.
The history behind World Beach Day
Beach Day was started by FloridaSmart.com and WalkintheSand.com Founder and beach lover, Patti Jewel, who is a strong advocate of protecting our beaches and keeping our beaches beautiful. The Day was conceived after a year long project to visit all of the beaches in Florida. As a Florida lover and Beach lover, the need to protect not only Florida’s beaches, but beaches around the world became a strong mission. The purpose of the day is to bring awareness to the problems facing some of our beach around the world with pollution, erosion, over development, urban run-off, contaminated sands that harm the wildlife and ruin the enjoyment of the beach and the glorious sand. At the same time, enjoying the beach by celebrating the beautiful coastal areas and appreciating the tranquility, peace and joy that this natural wonder can bring. Celebrate Beach Day Internationally and share the passion.
World Beach Day kicks off World Beach Month where lots of planned days and events bring awareness, cleanup and just a reminder to enjoy the gorgeous beach. To celebrate World Beach Day, organize an event in your area, list it with us, and let’s work together to protect our beaches.
