CUMBERLAND, R.I., March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Organizers and partners of Kenny Chesney's No Shoes Reefs gather via teleconference to review 2020 successes and strategies for 2021. At the meeting, founding member, Deep Ocean Apparel, presented a Q4 donation check, bringing the total to over $27,000 in six short months and removing nearly 40,000 plastic bottles from the environment. DEEP's CEO, Mike Croteau commented, "Giving back to ocean habitat is not only our corporate responsibility, it helps ensure we can enjoy the resource we love the most with our kids and their kids for generations to come." This grass roots effort of No Shoes Reefs has helped secure funding to deploy multiple freshwater and ocean habitat projects around the country. Most recently, No Shoes Reefs and their partners Reef Ball Foundation, CCA Florida, and Palm Beach County deployed 13-10,000 pound reef balls to kick off a new underwater dive park off the coast of Delray Beach, FL.
In addition to the No Shoes Reefs line, Deep has expanded its commitment to No Shoes Reef by donating a portion of proceeds from its entire ECO- Series line of apparel created from recycled bottles reclaimed from the environment. Deep has also committed to a more sustainable operation with the removal of most single use plastics in production and packaging.
"Love the water, give back to the water," Chesney said in a statement. "Many people don't realize both how fragile and resilient the ocean's ecosystems are, and I think it's the small projects that raise awareness on local levels that help people understand the ocean is a living thing."
