SANTA MONICA, Calif.– Project Save Our Surf, a 501(c)3 charity, announced a yearlong sponsorship with Kona Deep, a deep ocean bottled water company founded in Hawaii. The organizations will primarily be supporting cleanup efforts in Santa Monica, with the first cleanup of the year on Jan. 12, 2019.
“We are so thrilled to partner with Kona Deep. To have a partner devoted to our shared mission of conservation is transformative for us as a growing charity,” says Shaka Smith, actor, honorary board member and organizer of the Project Save Our Surf Cleanup effort.
Founder Tanna Frederick echoed Smith’s optimism. “Since beginning this journey, I have been inspired most by the people and organizations willing to dive in head first and get things done and Kona Deep is no exception. We will be accomplishing great things in 2019 and beyond.”
Kona Deep, since its inception, has incorporated methods in their own production to minimize their carbon footprint. Heather Diamond, field marketing director for Kona Deep noted, “We are committed to constantly improving our sustainability and have the following plans to help us do that: incorporate more recycled plastics into our production; commitment to ocean protection and beach cleanups, through financial support of other organizations as well as company participation in cleanups.”
Kona Deep’s sponsorship means more support for volunteers at Project Save Our Surf’s monthly cleanups in Santa Monica and expansion of local cleanup efforts to Huntington and Malibu beaches, as well as domestic and international efforts to provide clean drinking water to those in need. Diamond added, “Project Save Our Surf perfectly aligns with our company’s sustainability mission to protect the health and longevity of our sacred planet and oceans. We could not be more proud to support local ocean protection causes and encourage others to clean, recycle, and look out for our planet’s future.”
The Project Save Our Surf beach cleanups are held on the second Saturday of every month, from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. located at Tower 26 in Santa Monica.

Kona Deep represents a completely new category of water: deep ocean water replete with a unique blend of naturally occurring deep ocean electrolytes. Kona Deep is sourced from the deep ocean waters of Hawaii, 3000 feet beneath the ocean surface, where cold, pressure and natural minerals combine to create an exceptionally high quality water. Once brought to the surface, the water is desalinated and bottled at the source with absolutely nothing added. Deep Ocean Water provides a sustainable alternative to our planet’s dwindling fresh water supplies while providing superior hydrating properties through naturally occurring electrolytes from deep ocean minerals.
