4th Annual 'Ohana Giveback Day

On Friday, November 15th, 2013, as part of a long-standing commitment to giving back in a hands-on approach, OluKai closed down their offices in Orange County to participate in their 4th annual Giveback Day. This year, OluKai partnered with ZeroTrash Laguna Clean-Up and Pacific Marine Mammal Center, in Laguna Beach, California. Over 35 members of the company arrived at the Marine Mammal Center to learn about the disastrous effects of trash and recyclables in our watersheds and oceans, and how much it effects our marine life, specifically the local sea lions. After the presentation, OluKai staff participated in  a 2 hour trash clean-up along Laguna Canyon highway and removed over 240 lbs of recyclables and 60 pounds of cigarette butts that were on their way directly to the ocean. Giveback Day is part of the 'Ohana Giveback Program, in which we select companies and organizations that are actively pursuing Mauka- and Makai-based initiatives. These partnerships allow us to demonstrate our gratitude in a way that is meaningful and enriching for everyone involved. About Pacific Marine Mammal Center
