SEA-DOO TO BEGIN SEA-DOO CLEAN SEA PROJECT WITH GOAL OF STARTING GLOBAL WATERWAY CLEAN-UP MOVEMENT WHILE CELEBRATING 50TH ANNIVERSARY
On Saturday the 21st of April 2018, BRP, makers of Sea-Doo watercraft, will celebrate and support Earth Day weekend with the launch of the Sea-Doo Clean Sea project – a shoreline/island clean-up effort in two Florida locations; Miami Marine Stadium in Miami and Maximo Park in St. Petersburg.
This clean-up effort is to help keep waterways trash-free so that all can enjoy the beauty of nature, will be powered by volunteers from various personal watercraft (PWC) clubs from the local areas and sponsored by Sea-Doo.
At 9 AM ET, on the Saturday of Earth Day weekend, a fleet of PWC owners will gather and then ride out to designated areas to pick up trash and debris from beaches and shorelines. All collected garbage will taken to a dedicated drop off location to be picked up for disposal by Waste Management. A deliciously wholesome and earth-friendly lunch will be provided to all volunteers after the clean-up.
As Sea-Doo celebrates its 50th anniversary of continual environmentally responsible innovation, BRP embraces the opportunity to start an environmental responsibility movement. BRP envisions that the Clean Sea project will become an annual event that will eventually expand from a local Florida program to a worldwide initiative, one that will continue through the next 50 years and beyond.
