For more than 25 years, Baykeeper has worked to stop pollution in San Francisco Bay and its tributaries throughout the Bay Area. They’re the only nonprofit with a pollution patrol boat that regularly monitors and investigates contamination in the Bay.
Earlier this month, members of the 10Fold team attended Baykeeper’s 30th birthday bash at Anchor Public Tabs in San Francisco. As part of the celebration, Baykeeper unveiled its new partnership with Anchor Brewing Company, the Baykeeper IPA, of which a portion of the proceeds will directly support San Francisco Baykeeper and their efforts to stop polluters, so the Bay’s water is healthy for wildlife and local communities.
About the Beer
“Teeming with lime, orange zest, and papaya aromas, Baykeeper IPA has a slightly spicy, yet slightly sweet taste that finishes with a delicate bitterness,” shared Anchor Brewmaster Scott Ungermann. The 10Fold team enjoyed a pint (or two) alongside many other Baykeeper supporters – and we all agree that the brew is a hit!
The 10Fold – Baykeeper Connection
This year’s Media SharkTank event, a one-of-a-kind opportunity for tech execs to try out a company or product pitch with top US journalists, hosted by 10Fold, was able to raise $22,000 for Baykeeper. This year marked 10Fold’s eighth year of support for the organization.
“In addition to trash, the Bay is also threatened by other significant sources of pollution, including industrial toxins, sewage spills, and oil,” said Sejal Choksi-Chugh is the Executive Director of San Francisco Baykeeper. “In the face of these threats, we will continue to be San Francisco Bay’s champion to help protect the Bay from pollution and other harm.”
So, What’s Next?
Did you know that by supporting Baykeeper, you can:
- Safeguard the Bay from industrial toxins from more than 40 industrial facilities;
- Keep millions of gallons of sewage out of the Bay and local neighborhoods;
- Achieve stronger protections that prevent oil spills in the Bay;
- Conduct shoreline cleanups that remove trash before it can enter the Bay
- And much, much more!
Baykeeper’s vision for the next 25 years is a San Francisco Bay environment where the water is clean, the ecosystem is healthy, recreation is safe, and wildlife can thrive. Want to help?
