Celebrate World Ocean Month at Starrett-Lehigh

RXR Realty’s Social Impact Month continues at Starrett-Lehigh in recognition of World Ocean Month! In partnership with Les girls les boys, we are excited to share our support of Found Water‘s #the100kinitiative and World Ocean Month. This experiential popup will be hosted on the ground floor of Starrett-Lehigh; enter on 27th Street. 

In celebration of World Ocean Month, we’re bringing to life a pop-up that immerses you “in a larger-than-life, art-meets-fashion experience” supporting #the100kintiative – an effort to reduce single-use plastics and help protect marine life benefitting the world’s largest ocean advocacy group, Oceana.

Imagine being surrounded by a larger than life interpretation of the Great Wave of Kanagawa in New York’s urban setting, amplified by the sounds of the ocean and sighting of whales. #the100kintiative pop-up hosts world-renowned artist Amit Greenberg’s installation showcasing the true impact of plastic on our oceans.

Come discover an exclusive assortment of swim by fashion brand les girls les boys. Les girls les boys is committed to inspiring sustainable change amongst the fashion industry, and will feature a curated shop of their latest swim collection alongside limited-edition sparkling water by FOUND, and getNaeco’s reusable straws – a portion of the proceeds will benefit #the100kinitaitive supporting Oceana throughout June and early July.

As one of New York’s most sustainable and socially conscious buildings, we hope the #StarrettFamily will join us for the grand opening on Thursday, June 20, 7pm-9pm. The opening will feature Amit Greenberg as our guest alongside a percussionist Fernando Velez who will perform using the bottles as the instrument. You can RSVP here.

Following the opening, the exhibit will be open daily, 12pm-7pm, until July 3.
