For hundreds of Cox employees, a day at the beach is about a lot more than sand and surf – it’s an opportunity to make a positive impact on our oceans. During 2014, we gathered at beaches in California, Florida, New York and Washington to help clean up shorelines. In all, more than 5 tons of trash was removed as part of these beach cleanups.
These volunteer efforts are part of our national partnership with Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit dedicated to educating and empowering citizens to take action on behalf of our oceans. Beach trash and debris not only endanger marine and wildlife, but also injure swimmers and drive away tourist dollars. Our partnership with Ocean Conservancy not only results in cleaner beaches, but also offers a great opportunity for our employees to engage with each other and experience firsthand how every individual can contribute to a much greater cause.
