Last Thursday night, we winded our way down the PCH to the Malibu Pier and joined Rothy’s co-founder Roth Martin for a dinner to celebrate World Ocean Day (June 8). Guests included the evenings’ hosts, model and activist Carolyn Murphy, filmmaker and surfer Danny Fuller, plus Leighton Meester, Rachel Zoe, Cameron Richardson, Alana Hadid and Minnie Mortimer.

The dinner honored Project Zero, a global movement working to protect and restore the ocean, turning the tide on the climate crisis.
According to Project Zero, “It is estimated that 93% of the earth’s CO2 is stored or cycled through the oceans – in fact the ocean absorbs carbon dioxide at a rate of one Hiroshima bomb every single second, every single day, every single year. We need to restore the ocean to health to save our planet.”

Since its inception, Rothy’s has converted over 125 million bottles into shoes, keeping plastic out of our oceans and landfills. Their popular flats (like the ones shown above on Murphy), have become staples in sustainable wardrobes everywhere for years now. Their ever-expanding shoe and accessory lines now include timeless Mary Janes (as shown on Meester), men’s driving mocs, and a line of handbags, all made with ‘marine plastic’.
