Summer is finally here, and in Rhode Island, that means it’s time for the beach! Del’s Lemonade, swimming, tanning, surfing, kayaking, boating, fishing, fireworks, parties… Rhode Island beaches are ready for the season!
With over 400 miles of coastline, everyone has their favorite place to spend the summer. But did you know a lot of energy goes into protecting our beaches all year round? In addition to state funding and protection agencies, much of the work is done by a local charity, Save the Bay. Their goal is to keep the bay healthy, fishable and swimmable for Rhode Island residents and guests. But this is no easy feat.
Many people are unaware of the daily damage we are causing our beaches and waterways. Whether you are a lifetime Rhode Islander or a weekend visitor, it is important to think about and learn how to protect and improve our bay.
Save the Bay treats Narragansett Bay as a “living classroom”. They offer community programs and educational courses for all age groups. Anyone can become a volunteer or donate to helping keep our bay clean and safe.
Why Save the Bay
Our founders, Kendra and Phil, both grew up at the beach. Some of their earliest memories include building drippy castles, boogey boarding with friends, playing manhunt in the cabanas and learning to surf. As they got older, both Kendra and Phil lifeguarded in the summers and spent their free time basking in the sun, surfing the waves and barbecuing with their family and friends.
It is important to us to protect the Narragansett Bay. Help us give back this summer season by making a purchase at any Kendra Phillip trunk show or learn how to get more involved with Save the Bay on their website.
