Celebrate World Ocean's Day with Depth and Win the Full Line!

Officially recognized by the UN in 2008, but unofficially celebrated since 1992, World Oceans Day allows us the opportunity to delight in our world ocean and explore our personal connections to the sea. I cannot think of a more better time for us all to get involved. In light of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico which might soon reach the Atlantic Ocean, doing all we can to preserve our waters is now more important than ever.

Some companies are supporting World Oceans Day with products, such as La Mer is with their special edition in blue, and another fine company, Depth. Depth, a hair and skincare company, realizes the importance of the ocean and its inhabitants, especially as their company was founded by a marine biologist that uses sea-based ingredients to clean, nourish and refresh skin and hair.  So, to commemorate and honor World Oceans Day, Depth will donate $1 from each unit of it's line sold from June 8th through June 15th to the National Audubon Society for Gulf oil spill recovery.

The Depth collection consists of shampoos, conditioners, hand soaps, body wash, hand and body lotions, and shave creams in four exclusive scents: Mangrove Citrus, Sea Berry, Orange Blossom and Bay Coconut.

The ocean should be important to everyone, whether you surf, fish, or enjoy the beautiful beaches. It can be a dangerous place and should be respected. But it also creates jobs, feeds people and wildlife. Where would we be without it?
The oceans are important to me because they are the home of so many plants and animals.
The ocean is important because it contains all that I love the seafood, a ace to boat, & swim and the oxygen I need to breathe.. Save our seas!!
The ocean is important to me because it is part of earth and we all know how well we treat our earth.
I went to Jamaica in April and had the tremendous fortune of being able to wake up and look at the sea every morning.
After breakfast I would go walk in the water and I felt so connected to Mother Nature. In about 5 feet of space there was such
an abundance and variety of beautiful fish (they loved muffins for breakfast too, tee hee) who co-existed with humans so beautifully. They would swim around my feet and wait for their treat. It was an amazing experience.
The ocean is important because it sustains the vast majority of life on the planet; without it there would be no us.
The ocean sustains the planet and all that lives on it...we need to keep it clean and protect it from toxins!!
The ocean is important to me because it is teeming with biodiversity. Plus, the true depths of the ocean have yet to be explored and mapped.
The oceans are important to me, as a scientist, because they represent a relatively unexplored bounty of biological diversity! From sea-vent bacteria to's just cool!
I grew up in California and the ocean has been there all my life!! It reminds me of my childhood when my parents would take me to the beach or fishing! The ocean is a beautiful~
The Ocean is important to me because it's home to so many wonderful living creatures!
The ocean has lots of beautiful creatures and is important for the balance of the Earth.
The ocean is very important to me and it should be to everyone! It is home to many great and beautiful creatures, it covers more of the earths surface than land!
The Ocean is important to me because it is what gives us breathing room between the land that we crowd onto and live on.
I grew up just a few miles from the ocean. I have always had a strong connection to it. I no longer live near the water, so now I keep aquariums to remind me of the beauty of the sea. Something about the ocean always rejuvenates me and brings me peace.
I love the mystery of the ocean, how there's always more to discover in it's hidden depths. It has a powerful place in my imagination- it's connected to shared culture and history from Homer to Sir Francis Drake. As a child I used to sit at the beach and think about the lands on the other side of the Pacific, endlessly fascinated by the distance yet feeling so close.
The ocean is important to me, because it has a lot of beautiful and unique creatures. :)
the ocean is one of our world's beauties.. it makes me so sad, all this oil spill going on.
The oil spill in the gulf is a strong reminder of how fragile our eco system is. We all need to be aware of the ocean and its many uses.
The ocean is important to me because it is a beautiful place to take my family to swim and play on it's shores!

The ocean is important to me because I love scuba diving. It is so beautiful and peaceful under the water and the creatures are wonderful and different.
The ocean supports all life and personally created life for my family (my son was conceived on a boat).

The ocean is important to me since it is an environment that harbors so much sealife. I love the birds, turtles and other sealife. It is a beautiful part of our wolrd.

The ocean has a healing energy to it. Being near the ocean and smelling the smells, and hearing the sounds is so rejuvinating.
