World Oceans Day - June 8

Each year on June 8, communities around the globe celebrate World Oceans Day. This is an opportunity to learn about our oceans, to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in our lives, and understand the important ways people can help to protect our shared world ocean.

At Rubio's, we have a passion for a healthy ocean and do what we can year-round to be a friend to the ocean. Over the last four years, Rubio's has joined in the World Oceans Day celebration by giving away over 30,000 free reusable tote bags to help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans. Also, a majority of the seafood we serve is prepared using sustainable seafood. Click here to learn more about what Rubio's does to be a friend of the ocean.

We gave away 30,000 Reusable Tote Bags on June 7th & 8th!

Here are some ways to be a friend to the ocean year-round:

  • Use reusable tote bags instead of plastic bags at the grocery store
  • Choose sustainable seafood when you can (like our Alaska Pollock, Shrimp, Regal Springs® Tilapia or Atlantic Salmon)
  • Participate in a beach or park cleanup
  • Recycle
  • Visit your local aquarium
  • Swim, surf or kayak − just get in the water
  • Donate to an ocean-friendly charity, like The Ocean Project
  • Write to your local congressperson letting them know what the ocean means to you

With the help of 700 volunteers, over 350 lbs. of trash was cleaned up off the beach in Oceanside, CA at our 2nd Annual Beach Cleanup and Party - and we had an amazing time doing it! Rubio's is a friend to the ocean. We understand that the very essence of who we are stems from the ocean, so we wanted to find a way to commemorate that and bring it to life in a big way to launch our World Oceans Day celebration.

Mark your calendars on May 10, 2014 for our next event,
