Urban runoff is the #1 source of ocean pollution. Water running off our properties picks ups pollutants like fertilizers, pesticides, animal poo, and fine sediment as well as oil, brake pad dust and exhaust from cars. Runoff also contributes to flooding, and it wastes a free source of irrigation in the landscape. Click here to learn more.
Ocean Friendly Gardens (OFG) revive our watersheds and oceans by applying CPR - Conservation, Permeability and Retention - to our landscapes and hardscapes. OFGs utilize rainwater as a resource, create permeable soil and hard surfaces, and conserve water, energy and wildlife habitat through native plants and drip irrigation. Vegetable and fruit trees gardens can be OFGs as as long as they "apply CPR."
Whether or not you install an OFG at your home, work or public area, you can volunteer with a Surfrider chapter or school club near you.
