Blog : Redhook 10% Tuesdays to Benefit Blue Ocean Society

By Patrick Haigis | Oct 1, 2014 | in

Part of Redhook Brewery's mission (aside from making bold and flavorful beers) is to provide support for the local Seacoast community. This past year they have taken that mission to the next level with their 10% Tuesdays program. Every Tuesday Redhook donates 10 percent of its profits to a particular New Hampshire non-profit organization, with the focus being on a different organization each month. For the month of October Redhook is happy to provide its support to one of Green Alliance's partners, the Blue Ocean Society.

Founded in 1996, Blue Ocean Society has become an indespinsible resource for researchers, environmental advocates and citizens of all ages thanks to a bevy of engaging and educational outreach programs. In 2012 alone, Blue Ocean Society headed 219 beach cleanups - all in an area extending from York, Maine to Salisbury, Massachusetts - in the process collecting 12,477 pounds of trash.

Redhook's charity give-back program has helped spread awareness for meaningful causes. The pub has in turn experienced more business on each Tuesday because friends and donators to each organization patronized the pub. A "multiplier effect" resulted from organizations teaming up to work together on this project. Many of the foundations featured in the 2013 program have returned for a second year. The program has improved community connections and benefited green, non-profit groups.
