A few weeks ago we got to team up with Sprout Watches and The Surfrider Foundation for a “Clean The Beach” day in Rockaway Beach. It was International Surf Day and Sprout and Surfrider sponsors the even. Hundreds of people showed up to help clean Rockaway beach and the event was a HUGE success. New ashtrays were also donated and placed along the boardwalk. After the cleaning event, Sprout, Surfrider and many other vendors set up booths along the boardwalk to showcase some of their products.

If you don;t know much about Sprout Watches, your missing out. Sprout produces completely eco-friendly watches. Not only do they help the environment, but these watches look great too and are quite trendy. The watches are made out of corn resin, bamboo, mineral crystal, organic cotton, among others to make sure you are getting the most eco-friendly watch on the market.
