Love Blue Inc. Gears Up for World Ocean Weekend with Major Events and Partnerships


As World Ocean Weekend approaches, Love Blue Inc. is eagerly preparing for a series of impactful events and collaborations to celebrate and protect our oceans. This year, the organization is kicking off the festivities with an exciting event at Ocean Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, on Saturday, June 8th, World Oceans Day.


Ocean Casino Partnership and Event


Ocean Casino has generously donated $1,000 to support Love Blue Inc.’s mission of ocean conservation. This event will provide an excellent opportunity for Love Blue to connect with casino patrons, other organizations, and the wider community, sharing their mission and encouraging more people to get involved in ocean preservation.


“We’re thrilled to partner with Ocean Casino for World Oceans Day,” said AJ Caruso of Love Blue Inc. “Their generous donation and support allow us to further our mission and reach new audiences. We look forward to a day of meaningful connections and spreading awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans.”


Expanding Connections in Seaside


Following the event at Ocean Casino, Love Blue’s executive team will drive to Seaside to meet with Trisha Devoe AKA Miss Belmar, and other ocean advocacy groups. This gathering aims to strengthen existing relationships and explore new collaborations that can amplify their collective impact on ocean conservation efforts.


“These connections are crucial for building a united front in the fight to protect our oceans,” said Caruso. “By working together with like-minded advocates and organizations, we can achieve much more than we could alone.”


Evening Beach Cleanup in Wildwood


The excitement continues later that evening with a beach cleanup in Wildwood at 6 PM. Volunteers will gather to remove litter and debris from the shoreline, helping to maintain the beauty and health of the local beaches. This cleanup is part of Love Blue’s ongoing efforts to engage the community in hands-on environmental stewardship.


Kicking Off Weekly Cleanups in Wildwood Crest


On Sunday night at 6 PM, the Wildwood Crest chapter will kick off their weekly summer beach cleanups, which will continue until September. These cleanups are crucial in keeping the beaches pristine throughout the busy summer season.


The Wildwood Crest chapter is collaborating with local young entrepreneur Zach Marion and friends from Shoreline Waste Solutions. This partnership not only focuses on cleaning properties but also dedicates time to cleaning the sand, ensuring a comprehensive approach to beach maintenance.


“We’re excited to start our weekly cleanups and collaborate with passionate local leaders like Zach Marion,” said Caruso. “Their dedication to the cause is inspiring and vital for the success of our efforts.”


A Big Weekend Ahead

In a commendable display of community support and environmental stewardship, Beach Cart Creations of Wildwood Crest has generously donated another custom beach cart to bolster the summer beach cleanup efforts in the Wildwoods. This latest contribution comes as a significant boost to the newly formed Wildwood Chapter, enhancing their capacity to maintain the pristine condition of the beaches in this popular tourist destination.


Continuing a Legacy of Giving

Phil, the owner of Beach Cart Creations, has been a steadfast ally in the battle against beach pollution. Over the past years, his contributions have been instrumental in the success of the Wildwood Crest Chapter's cleanup initiatives. With two previous cart donations, Phil has enabled the removal of over 10,000 pounds of waste from the beaches of Wildwood Crest, a remarkable achievement that underscores the impact of community collaboration.


Expanding the Reach

The latest donation marks an exciting expansion of the cleanup efforts. The newly formed Wildwood Chapter will now benefit from a custom beach cart specifically designed to aid in the collection and transportation of beach debris. This new chapter is crucial as Wildwood, adjacent to Wildwood Crest, sees a significant influx of tourists every summer, making the maintenance of its beaches both challenging and essential.

The new cart will facilitate more efficient cleanups, allowing volunteers to cover larger areas and manage heavier loads with greater ease. This not only enhances the effectiveness of the cleanup efforts but also ensures that the beaches remain welcoming and safe for both locals and visitors.


Community and Environmental Impact

Phil's dedication to supporting beach cleanups highlights the importance of local businesses in driving community initiatives. Beach Cart Creations has not only provided vital tools for cleanup operations but has also inspired others to take an active role in preserving the natural beauty of the Wildwoods.

“Seeing the difference our carts make is incredibly rewarding,” Phil said. “We’re thrilled to support the Wildwood Chapter and look forward to seeing the positive impact they’ll have on the environment.”


Looking Ahead

With the added resources, the Wildwood Chapter is poised to make significant strides in beach preservation this summer. Volunteers are eager to utilize the new cart to tackle the heightened tourist traffic and ensure that the beaches remain litter-free.

The continued partnership between Beach Cart Creations and the Wildwood cleanup chapters exemplifies how local businesses and community groups can work together towards a common goal. As the summer season progresses, the combined efforts of the Wildwood and Wildwood Crest Chapters, supported by Beach Cart Creations, will undoubtedly contribute to cleaner, more beautiful beaches for everyone to enjoy.

In a world where environmental challenges can often seem insurmountable, stories like this remind us of the power of community and the difference that dedicated individuals and businesses can make. The Wildwoods are not just a summer getaway; they are a testament to what can be achieved when people come together to protect and cherish the natural world.
