March 22nd is World Water Day! This year especially, we are remembering how important clean water is to sanitation and health. Check out ways you can help in your community.

Celebrate World Water Day by planting a tree! Trees help purify our water, reduce erosion, control flooding, and absorb greenhouse gasses. Pick up a Loblolly Pine seedling at Fishtowne Brew House in Beaufort, NC. They are open for growler fills 5-7 pm Thursday-Sunday.

Tree planting is a great way to practice social distancing while protecting clean water. If you can’t make it in person, visit our website to learn more about our Coastal Habitat Restoration Program and other ways you can get involved in protecting clean water.

Ocean Friendly Establishments are businesses that have taken major steps to reduce plastic usage. When you choose an OFE, you support ocean health!

Many OFEs have adjusted their business practices to continue to safely serve the community. Be sure to follow your favorite businesses for updates on how to support them during this time. Learn more about OFEs and plastic pollution on our website.

Easy ways to protect clean water from home:

  • Always use water wisely.
  • Plant a rain garden to reduce stormwater runoff. Collect rainwater to water indoor plants.
  • Start a compost bin for organic fertilizer and to reduce food waste. Vermiculture is especially fun!
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals and synthetic fertilizers or pesticides that could run into storm drains.
  • Reduce your consumer waste to prevent plastic pollution.
  • Do a solo litter cleanup and use the Marine Debris Tracker app to record your finds. You can submit useful data to scientists all over the world working to reduce and prevent marine debris!
