Yokohama Tire Working with Surfrider North OC on Several Environmental Projects

Adding to its list of environmental advocates, Yokohama Tire announced it is working with a local chapter of the nationally recognized nonprofit Surfrider Foundation USA on several projects. Yokohama will aid the North Orange County chapter on Surfrider’s overall mission to protect the world’s ocean, waves and beaches for everyone to enjoy.

According to Alan Holtschneider, Yokohama’s director of marketing, the tiremaker will help support Surfrider North OC with the distribution of student club memberships; water quality testing kits; biodegradable utensils, straws, etc., starter kits for restaurants wanting to become ocean friendly; cigarette butt collection canisters; and replacement equipment for harbor cleanups.

Holtschneider added that “YTC will also be able to send two to three volunteers to Washington, DC and Sacramento, California in 2024 to speak with elected officials regarding the issues and solutions impacting our coastline.”

Yokohama is also supporting Surfrider North OC’s Surf City Splash 2024 event New Year’s Day at the Huntington Beach, California pier.

“Yokohama is proud to be working side-by-side with Surfrider North OC to help them contribute to a sustainable society through numerous initiatives to protect the environment,” said Holtschneider.

“Our Surfrider chapter is stoked to have the support of Yokohama Tire in our efforts to protect and enjoy the ocean, waves and beaches along the world-famous Huntington, Newport and Seal Beach coast,” said Richard Busch, co-chair, Surfrider Foundation North Orange County.
