Live & Learn/ POV Editor Dina Ciccarelli shares her experience cleaning up the beaches with Morgan Taylor and Gelish on International Surfi ng Day. Protecting Our Oceans I recently ventured to the pier in Huntington Beach, California, to celebrate International Surfi ng Day with Morgan Taylor (@mtmorgantaylor), Gelish (@gelish_offi cial) and the Surfrider Foundation. International Surfi ng Day is dedicated to our oceans, and groups and communities come together to pick up debris along the water, educate themselves on the importance of environmental protection, and celebrate the joys that going to the beach can bring to sports, families and communities. This year's theme was "Protect and Enjoy," and consisted of a beach cleanup, surf lessons, music and more. Vendors including Morgan Taylor, Gelish and Oceana (an int ernational ocean conservation and advocacy organization) lined the pier to share information, provide raffl e products, and coordinate teams participating in the beach cleanup. I was greeted by the Morgan Taylor/Gelish team, including associate marketing digital manager Morgan Haile. All of the volunteers were given T-shirts, gloves and bags to store their collected trash. It was so amazing to see the beach fi lled with volunteers of all ages who wanted to help clean our environment by collecting waste. Despite the lack of sun that day, the energy of the volunteers was radiating throughout the event. Once my bag of debris was fi lled, I returned it to the Morgan Taylor/ Gelish tent, where in exchange for our trash bags, we were given a Morgan Taylor swag bag fi lled with goodies that included a water bottle and polish from the brand's Make a Splash summer collection. International Surfi ng Day was not only a success for us, but for more than 30 countries that participated in this event across the world. Being part of the beach cleanup was a wonderful opportunity to surround myself with people that share my passion for a cleaner and healthier Mother Earth. On a daily basis, I try to be aware of how my lifestyle impacts the environment, and attending events like this one make me want to do more for my local community and strive to have a greater impact when it comes to living a healthy, green lifestyle.
