Reef Madness: Malibu Rum x Reef Check Internship and Limited-Edition Bottle
What’s summer without some tropical-flavored cocktails, right? (Side note: that comment only applies to those of you over the age of 21; otherwise, please sip a Capri Sun, okay?) For me, few flavors and scents remind me of the Caribbean as much as coconut. So, when summer rolls around, you’ll find me stocking up on Philosophy’s Coconut Frosting 3-in-1 Shampoo, Body Wash and Bubble Bath, washing my hair with Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula shampoo and conditioner, and sipping on some coconut-flavored drinks made with Malibu Rum (for a simple, refreshing treat, just mix Malibu and pineapple juice).
Now, environmental activists also get a treat of their own courtesy of Malibu. The brand has partnered up with Reef Check, an international non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of tropical coral reefs and California rocky reefs. From July 1st through August 31st, environmentalists interested in opportunities for hand-on training can apply for one of ten spots in the first-ever Malibu Beach Internship Program. The chosen interns will spend 10 days on an assignment with trained Reef Check EcoDivers, exploring the marine eco systems in Thailand, the Philippines or the Maldives. To enter for a chance to become a Malibu Beach Intern, participants should visit Malibu-Rum.com/ReefCheck
Meanwhile, those who appreciate marine environments from a more distant vantage point can show their support by copping one of these limited-edition bottles, which convey Malibu’s commitment to supporting Reef Check’s endeavors. The bottle’s vibrant colors will make it a welcome addition to any bar — and will get summer party-goers in the mood to get their drink and their two-step on.
Malibu Reef Check bottle, $12.99. Available at select retail locations Visit Malibu-Rum.com for more info.
