Block 15 is excited to partner with Ocean Blue Project in Newport on Saturday, June 9th from 1:30pm - 5pm for the Oregon Ocean Day beach cleanup! Our distro team will be sampling out our delicious beer while our staff, family, and friends participate in the cleanup. Please join us for this fun and environmentally friendly event!


Ocean Blue Project focuses on cleaning the ocean and creating awareness to reduce the use of plastic. They are collecting microplastic fragments on every visit to the Oregon Coast year round. This project is a community effort, and all Oregonians are invited to participate. If we all do a little, we can achieve a lot!


Ocean Blue Project will be filming and interviewing volunteers in an ethnographic study about thoughts of marine debris. The documentary will highlight beach debris picked up at each beach cleanups across on the West Coast, Midwest, and East Coast during the National Beach Cleanup Tour 2018.

Their goal is to publish a short film about beach cleanups, marine debris found on beaches, and where the debris are coming from. The documentary will be an educational film about how we together can save our One World Ocean one wave at a time.

The microplastic fragments are easy to pick up, so it's fun for everyone. It doesn't cost anything to join this monumental movement. Simply pick up some plastic fragments next time you go to the beach. That's it! Sharing on social media is also another way to create awareness.
