Surfrider is excited to announce that it now cost $0.00 for restaurants to join our network of Ocean Friendly Restaurants! Our Ocean Friendly Restaurant team is working hard to reach out to our community to educate, share resources, and support restaurant owners who are looking to make the switch to sustainable restaurant practices. You can help us out by letting us know what restaurants you would like to see become ocean friendly!

More ways to get involved:

We’re excited to announce on May 18th at 6:30pm PST, Surfrider will be hosting a Zoom meeting to announce the new updates to the program. We hope with the updated criteria the program can eliminate even more plastic! Please click here to learn more about the meeting. Hope to see you there!


Email us at ofr@ventura.surfrider.org if you’re interested in joining the Ocean Friendly Restaurant Committee as a volunteer, we are always looking for fresh faces and ideas. All are welcome, no experience necessary. We look forward to incorporating the community feedback when reaching out to restaurants in the future.
