HAMPTON BEACH- In celebration of our beautiful home along the seacoast, Blue Ocean Society is launching their first formal event for World Oceans Day. World Oceans Day began in 2002 and is a growing event that honors the marine environment. To celebrate this event, Blue Ocean Society has a weekend filled with beach clean ups and an award ceremony recognizing groups and individuals who have made efforts to protect the ocean.

As a advocate for the environment and a Green Alliance Business Partner, Blue Ocean Society works to protect our seacoast waters through research and public action. The Green Alliance is an organization that connects green-minded consumers with businesses that work to lessen their impact on the environment. One of the ways in which Blue Ocean Society involves the public in their efforts, is through organized beach clean ups. To recognize World Oceans Day, the society is hosting the Aquarion Water Company Environmental Champion Awards followed by a clean up of Hampton Beach on June 7.
