Kelly Slater’s not shy about voicing his opinions. He’s not shy about his love for the ocean and the environment. He routinely does good things for good causes, like rhinos, orangutans, the vaquita, UNICEF, Anti-DAPL, Polished Man, and countless others. Now, he’s donating 100% of all of Outerknown’s sales to the Ocean Conservancy, a group that “creates science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.”
It’s no coincidence that Kelly Slater chose today to donate to the Ocean Conservancy, either. As you may be aware, the United States began its descent into madness yesterday when Donald Trump officially took office and promptly erased all signs of climate change from the White House, despite the entire world screaming at him to please, please, listen to science and reason.
“Today is a symbolic day,” he wrote. “To acknowledge that, we (Outerknown) are donating 100% of today’s online sales to @oceanconservancy. Please support choices which seek to respect and honor this one planet we have to live on. Small gestures become large movements.”
So if you were planning on buying anything from Outerknown, today is the day to do it. If not, join the Ocean Conservancy and learn about more you can do to help.
