Essential Safe Products (ESP), a 1% member, cares deeply about the environment, the oceans in particular. ESP recently funded an event held by Oceana that was intended to launch the new SeaBlue campaign and raise awareness of the ocean’s importance to Florida. Hannah, President at ESP remarked, “We love what Oceana is all about because as Floridians, we are surrounded by water and know how important it is to keep it clean and keep animals safe! It aligns with what we do at ESP because in addition to supporting a healthy lifestyle we also want to promote a healthy environment. Without our oceans, Florida wouldn’t be!”
The event featured several high profile ambassadors for Oceana, musical guests, artists, hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and an auction. The group organized a petition requesting that Governor Rick Scott places a state ban on the trade of shark fins, highlighting the inhuman treatment of the sharks whose fins are harvested. Hannah reported that, “The event was a lot of fun. People seemed to be very excited about bidding on items and getting their money in the right hands to help our oceans. The Oceana ambassadors were particularly passionate about Oceana and its purpose.”
