GIFTS for the PLANET
Ocaquatics is a proud member of 1% for the Planet
We are a Business taking Responsibility for the Environment.
We commit to donate at least 1% of our annual sales to our
non-profit environmental partners below. We are part of a network that turns local action into global IMPACT.
Ocaquatics partners with the WE ARE NEUTRAL a non-profit that offsets our Scope 1 carbon emissions with verified environmental projects such as providing energy upgrades for low-income families and indigenous tree planting.
Our Families' Global Impact
663 million people in the world live without clean water.
That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick. Access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids.
For every swimming lesson that Ocaquatics teaches, we donate one day of water. Each time a child attends their swimming lesson they help to donate a day of water to someone in need.
We are a Force for Good
in our Community
Drowning is the Leading Cause of Accidental Death for Children Ages 5 & Under (CDC) and is 100% Preventable. Participation in formal swim lessons reduces risk of drowning by 88%! (NIH)
Ocaquatics also supports Stop Drowning Now, a non-profit that teaches kids how to recognize drowning risks and how to protect themselves and others. Kids learn preventative measures as well as emergency responses.
Ocaquatics partners with the HOPE FLOATS Foundation, a non-profit that provides scholarships and tuition assistance for swimming lessons to families who would otherwise not be able to afford it.
We are a Force for Good in our Community through our:
Annual School Supply Drive
