National Beach Day was founded in 2014 by Collen Paige, the same pet and family lifestyle expert, conservationist, author and artist who brought us National Dog Day, National Cat Day, National Puppy Day and others.

A beach bunny in her youth, Paige chose to champion the conservation of beaches after saving a baby Pelican. The bird was starving due to fishing line wrapped around its beak and wing. Paige freed the Pelican and decided to start a day dedicated to saving beaches and the wildlife that called them home.

Best estimates place the number of beaches in America at 90,000. The most popular is Huntington Beach in southern California with 19-million annual visitors. St. Petersburg, FL, is next with 15 million.

In 2018 nearly 60 percent of 4,523 beaches tested across the US exhibited unsafe water pollution levels on at least one day based on a report by the nonprofits Environment American Research & Policy Center and Frontier Group.

Helping recognize the day are the gang from Riverdale. This environmentally friendly digital download features Betty, Veronica and the rest of the crew frolicking in the sun in this double-sized collection of reprints.

For those heading out for some fun in the sun remember, the light rays of the sun reflect off the ocean water, making it even more intense for your skin. Protect your skin by applying sunscreen.

If you don’t live near the beach, throw a beach-themed party. Turn the backyard into a beach-blanket bingo with towels, wading pools, cold drinks and summertime foods.
