Wrapping Up a Successful Year of Ocean Cleanups with OVO Vodka

As the days grow shorter and the temperatures begin to drop, we at OVO Vodka are taking a moment to reflect on the incredible year of ocean cleanups we’ve had. We’re thrilled to share the highlights of our journey and express our deepest gratitude to the amazing volunteers who made it all possible. Together, we’ve made a significant impact on the environment and our local communities.

A Year of Dedication

At OVO Vodka, we’re committed to making a positive change in our environment, one cleanup at a time. Throughout the year, on the first Sunday of every month, our dedicated team and a fantastic group of volunteers gathered in Hoboken, NJ, to make a difference along Sinatra Drive, right on the picturesque waterfront.

Community Spirit

One of the most inspiring aspects of our ocean cleanups has been the incredible community spirit we’ve witnessed. Volunteers from all walks of life, young and old, joined forces with us to tackle the issue of ocean pollution. It’s heartwarming to see people come together with a shared passion for the environment.

The Scenic Beauty of Hoboken

Our cleanup location along Sinatra Drive in Hoboken not only provides a stunning backdrop but also serves as an important reminder of why our efforts are so crucial. With the breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline across the Hudson River, we’re reminded that we’re not just cleaning up for ourselves but for future generations who deserve to enjoy this beauty as well.

The Lola Hoboken: A Place to Unwind

After a productive morning of cleaning up, we believe in rewarding our hardworking volunteers. That’s why we hosted a well-deserved happy hour at The Lola in Hoboken. It’s a time to relax, share stories, and build friendships within our dedicated community.

Expanding Our Reach to Sea Girt

In addition to our regular Hoboken cleanups, we expanded our efforts to the beautiful beaches of Sea Girt, NJ. The pristine shoreline deserved our attention, and we were met with open arms by the local community.

Celebrating at Parker House

Just like in Hoboken, we didn’t forget to show our appreciation to the volunteers in Sea Girt. We celebrated another successful cleanup day at Parker House with an OVO Vodka-sponsored happy hour. These gatherings have become cherished moments of camaraderie and shared purpose.

Quantifying Our Impact

Throughout the year, we collected an average of 17 bags of garbage per cleanup. While this number may seem small compared to the vastness of our oceans, it’s a testament to what can be achieved when a community comes together with determination and a shared goal.

A Year of Gratitude

As we wrap up this year of ocean cleanups, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every volunteer who dedicated their time and energy to make a difference. Your unwavering support and enthusiasm have been the driving force behind our success.

Looking Forward

While the temperatures may drop, our commitment to ocean cleanup remains unwavering. We look forward to the year ahead, with more cleanups, more camaraderie, and more positive impact on our environment. Together, we can make a difference, one bag of garbage at a time.

In conclusion, OVO Vodka is not just a brand; it’s a community of environmentally-conscious individuals who are passionate about preserving our oceans and coastal areas. We’re immensely proud of what we’ve accomplished this year, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds. Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey, and here’s to many more successful cleanups ahead!
