Party for a Cause

Everything But Water and 1 Hotel South Beach will host a two-day event in Miami on April 4 and 5 to introduce Water is Everything, our commitment to fighting the crises facing our seas. Activities include a beach cleanup, dune restoration and trawling expedition and will support The 5 Gyres Institute’s mission to end plastic pollution in the ocean.
