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.
