+H20 brings water enthusiasts together while raising awareness for clean water issues.

A group of Maui residents who just happen to be some of the world’s most distinguished windsurfers are hosting a coastal cleanup on Maui’s North Shore in collaboration with Community Work Day, Surfrider Maui Chapter, lululemon athletica, and Maui Yoga Shala. Part of Community Work Day’s island-wide “Get the Drift and Bag It” campaign, the clean up will kick-off the launch of +H20, a global effort founded by professional windsurfers Levi Siver, Jake Miller, Pascal Bronnimann and Keith Teboul.  +H2O unites a global network of passionate water enthusiasts dedicated to clean water initiatives for communities around the world.
 
Community Work Day’s “Get the Drift and Bag It” campaign is an island-wide effort of clean-ups on Maui’s beaches during the months of September and October, in collaboration with the Ocean Conservancy’s 25TH ANNUAL International Coastal Cleanup. The +H20 North Shore Clean Up takes place on Saturday, October 23rd at 10am at Baldwin Beach Park. Participants will focus on cleaning several beaches including Baldwin Beach Park, Tavares Bay, Paia Bay and Ho’okipa Beach Park. The event also offers free yoga with Nadia Toraman of Maui Yoga Shala, live music, capoiera, and free refreshments provided by Mana Foods, The Fish Market, Flatbread Pizza and Tropics Water.
 
In addition, clean up participants, as well as the community, are invited to an evening fundraiser hosted by Elevate and sponsored by Ocean Vodka at Moana Café in Paia at 8pm. Maui artists Pio Marasco (MFC) (CityDeep/Nitelife Music) and Gretchen Rhodes will be performing live. Proceeds will go towards the +H2O Water Charities Fund contributing to future +H20 clean water projects.
 
“If it’s possible to windsurf Jaws, it’s possible to keep our oceans clean,” states +H20 Founder Jake Miller. “We are thrilled to partner with lululemon, Community Work Day and the Surfrider Foundation to create a fun event that will make such a positive impact on our community and the environment.”
 
Based on Maui, Hawaii, the +H2O network celebrates the sport of windsurfing and extends inspiration for clean living practices that are in support of health, wellness and environmental balance. Their efforts to raise awareness for clean water issues extend globally and they have already created a fund with Water Charity, a high impact international organization with a proven track record of successful clean water projects in communities around the world.
 
+H20 Founder Levi Siver states, "It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, it is important to protect the things that were here before us. Windsurfing is our passion, and it’s important for us to care for the resources that allow us to benefit from this sport. We want to encourage anyone who enjoys spending time in the ocean to do the same. “
 
The Charity Walk/ Maui Hotel & Lodging Association provided funding for this event. To find out more about +H20, this event, and other opportunities to get involved go to http://www.positive-H2O.com or http://www.facebook.com/positiveH2O?ref=ts.
