Rise Above Plastics This October with the Surfrider Foundation

During October, Surfrider’s Rise Above Plastic (RAP) initiative is teaming up with clothing brand Rusty to celebrate Raptoberfest. They’ll be sharing plastic-related facts, as well as tips on how to reduce your own plastic footprint.

A little over 25 years ago three people in Malibu, California found out that their favorite wave was about to be destroyed. Think about that for a second.

Think about something you love… something that gives you enjoyment. Taken away.

First Point, pictured to the right, the quintessential perfect, California wave was about to be destroyed. Those three people organized and worked with the local municipalities until they were satisfied that their efforts to preserve that iconic wave would be successful.

This was the genesis of Surfrider Foundation.

Today, Surfrider Foundation are doing this same thing in about 15 countries around the world.

You can take volunteer action to protect our ocean, waves and beaches through campaigns, programs and educational initiatives in your communities.

Giving Back to the Environment

We’ve joined more than 1,300 other companies around the world to support more than 2.300 environmental organizations through our membership in 1% for the Planet.  Why? At BottlesUp, being ‘green’ isn’t just a wish or a plaque we’ve put on the wall. We live it daily.  Every decision we make around our products and our company includes an answer to “how does this help the environment?” 

1 Percent for the PlanetWhen we looked at our options for donating a portion of our sales to a worthy cause, we knew immediately that the community and purpose of 1% for the Planet, fit with our ideals and our vision.  We joined an alliance of companies in the United State, Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Peru, Switzerland, Thailand, United Kingdom (and other countries as well) that understands that profit and loss are directly linked to its health, and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry .

And you can join us. Yes, you.  If you own a business – any size – or have influence with your boss consider becoming a member of with us. By contributing 1% of net annual sales to grassroots environmental groups around the world, members of 1% For The Planet affect real, measureable change. Why else should you think about joining 1% for the Planet? There’s a benefit, a satisfaction, to paving the way for more corporate responsibility in the business community and the recognition, support and patronage of conscientious consumers who value serious commitment to the environment.
