Looking for something fun to do this summer while you’re soaking up those rays at the beach and waiting for south swells? Well, then the Ocean Minded scavenger hunt may be just the thing for you. Ocean Minded has teamed up with the mobile app “Scavenger Hunt with Friends” to host a scavenger hunt that sends users around snapping photos of items with their mobile device and uploading them to the app. The application includes an interactive leader-board that shows the users how they are doing in the hunt standings, and the user with the highest point total on August 6th will receive a complete Ocean Minded apparel prize pack consisting of a fresh pair of shoes, a pair of sandals, a T-shirt, and a hat.
The 20 fun and creative items on the list are what you might expect from a surf brand that values itself on “utilizing natural and sustainable materials whenever possible” and are a good mix of items promoting environmental conservation and fun surf related items including:
Make a pair of sandals from two recycled egg cartons
Hold a poster saying “Respect the Oceans” at the entrance to a beach / lake / river.
Make a head-to-toe outfit made from only natural objects
Pretend to surf under a sprinkler
Handstand in water wearing sandals
Make are from at least 20 pieces of found trash
To play, users can simply search the App Store or Android Marketplace for the application, “Scavenger Hunt with Friends”, and once the application has been installed, the Ocean Minded Scavenger Hunt will be displayed for anyone to join. Both paid and free “lite” versions of the mobile application are available for iPhone and Android devices.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there! Go have some fun, win some great free stuff, and promote the environment we love!
