Founded by Raw Elements USA, a 1% For The Planet member, World Reef Day is the recurring annual calendar day for the world to come together in awareness and activation to effect positive change for our world’s reefs.

This is our 3rd year of World Reef Day on June 1, 2021 while at the tail end of the pandemic.

From taking World Reef Day fully virtual in 2020, we are finally able to host a small event in Miami, Florida at the 1Hotel and Beach Club. We know that the great threats to reefs are localized activity and pollution.  This event gives us an opportunity to build community awareness to Miami Beach’s reefs which are desperately in need.

About the event:

June 1, 2021

2341 Collins Avenue 

Miami Beach, FL 33139

Happy World Reef Day!!

We are kicking off World Ocean Month today by celebrating World Reef Day. Thank you to everyone who has supported us in the past and continues to do so today! It is very important to us to help educate people on how we can all take action in our everyday lives for the betterment of our oceans, and coral reefs. For us, we begin by making sure every single one of our products is reef safe. 

We are SO thankful for the organizations listed below (and many more) who work hard everyday to help this conservation. Please follow & support them as a way to stay more informed on this crucial topic!

Our coral reefs are in danger. In recent years, there has been a major decline of the world’s reef. Much of the destruction up until now has been done by humans, and we can fix it.

Industrial pollution, plastic pollution, sewage, chemical sunscreens and unmanaged high-density tourism all threaten coral reefs. The reef destruction that has happened up until now has been caused by humans, and we can fix it.

Three simple things you can do to make a difference are:

  1. Use #ReefSafe sunscreen
  2. Reduce single use plastics
  3. Share this post and spread awareness of this issue 

We have recently had an incredibly unique opportunity to slow down and recognize that we must be better stewards of our planet. Mother Earth has responded. What can be seen are bluer skies, cleaner air, clearer oceans and life returning to reefs. We must continue our efforts to protect the reefs and Mother Earth as a whole.
