Volkswagen Teams Up With The Surfrider Foundation Again To Keep Our Waters Clean

Posted by: Julie Piatek

Volkswagen of America, Inc. has committed to the Surfrider Foundation for a second year. The two teamed up to encourage people across the country to make positive changes in their lives in order to keep our nation’s oceans, waves, beaches, and waterways clean and healthy now, and in the future.

Volkswagen has a campaign called Think Blue, which promotes clean water, and so the two organizations go hand in hand. Think Blue symbolizes Volkswagen’s goal of creating products that encourage eco-conscious behavior.

Volkswagen of America, Inc. has donated more than $300,000 to the Surfrider Foundation already, and another $100,000 will be contributed this year. This year’s money will fund the Surfrider’s Blue Water Task Force, Know Your H2O, and Ocean Friendly Gardens programs.  All of those programs educate and help the public about improving water quality.

The Jetta SportWagen TDI and Touareg Hybrid have become the official support vehicles for the Surfrider Foundation.

Local chapters of the Surfrider Foundation will attend Volkswagen events throughout the year to educate automotive fans about its clean water programs and campaigns.  To celebrate the 10-year Anniversary of Surfrider’s International Surfing Day on June 20, Volkswagen owners will have the chance to partake in beach cleanups and other Surfrider Foundation activities.
