Celebrate World Ocean Day with Ilk Splashbags: The Ultimate Beach Companion

June 8th marks a special day on the calendar for ocean lovers worldwide - World Ocean Day. It’s a time to appreciate our oceans, raise awareness about their conservation, and reflect on how we can protect these precious resources. Whether you’re heading to the beach for a celebration or just planning a seaside escape, Ilk Splashbags are the beach bags you never knew you needed. Let’s explore how these versatile bags can enhance your beach experience and help protect our environment.

What is World Ocean Day?

A global celebration

World Ocean Day is an annual event aimed at honouring our oceans and promoting efforts to safeguard them. It brings together people from all walks of life to celebrate the beauty of our marine environments and advocate for sustainable practices.

Why does it matter?

Our oceans are not only stunning, they are vital - they produce more than half of the world’s oxygen and house a vast array of biodiversity. Yet, as we all know, they are under threat from pollution, overfishing, and climate change. World Ocean Day reminds us of our responsibility to protect these stunning ecosystems for future generations.

Ilk Splashbags: Your Beach Essential

The perfect beach bag

Ilk Studio was born from a love of the ocean and to help make ocean lovers' lives easier! Our reliable beach bags are a must-have for anyone heading to the beach. Ilk Splashbags are designed to be lightweight, durable, and spacious enough to hold all your beach necessities - from towels and sunscreen, snacks and books to having somewhere to throw in your sandy, soggy swimmers when it’s time to head home.

Wetsuit bags for adventurers

If you’re an avid surfer or diver, you know the struggle of dealing with wet gear. Ilk Splashbags double as wetsuit bags, keeping your wetsuits separated from your dry items. These bags are water-resistant and washable, making them ideal for carrying wet swimwear and diving gear.

Benefits of using Ilk Splashbags

Eco-friendly choice

By choosing Ilk Splashbags, you’re supporting a sustainable lifestyle. These bags are made from recyclable materials, helping to reduce plastic waste and protect our oceans. Every purchase is a step towards a cleaner, greener planet.

Versatility at its best

Ilk Splashbags aren’t just for the beach. Use them as gym bags, travel organisers, or even laundry bags. Their versatility means you get more use out of one product, making it a smart, eco-conscious choice.

Bags for wet swimwear

After a fun day at the beach, you’re often left with damp swimwear. Ilk Splashbags are perfect for storing wet swimwear, preventing moisture from seeping into your other belongings or from making your towels even heavier! Just toss your wet items into the bag, zip it up, and you’re good to go! 

How to Celebrate World Ocean Day

Participate in beach cleanups

One of the best ways to celebrate World Ocean Day is by participating in beach cleanups. Grab your Ilk Splashbag and join a local community effort to pick up litter and plastic waste. Not only will you help keep the beach clean, but you’ll also contribute to ocean conservation.

Spread awareness

Use your voice to spread the word about the importance of ocean conservation. Share facts, stories, and tips on social media to educate your friends and family. Encourage others to make sustainable choices like using Ilk Splashbags.

Practical Tips for Using Ilk Splashbags

Packing your beach bag

Pack smart! Use the midi bags to organise smaller items such as your sunglasses, car keys, books and snacks and use our maxi bag for your towel and other larger items. This way, everything stays neat and accessible.

Cleaning and maintaining your bag

To keep your Ilk Splashbag in top condition, simply rinse it with fresh water after each use, especially after contact with saltwater. Allow it to air dry completely before storing it away. Use a gentle soap to remove any tough stains.
