Surfers against Sewage.
It’s more than keeping our beaches clean…
In recent years, the UK has seen a significant rise in awareness and concern for the state of our oceans and coastline. One organization at the forefront of this movement is Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), a charity dedicated to protecting our oceans, waves, beaches, and marine life.
Founded in 1990, SAS has been working tirelessly to combat the pollution and degradation of our coastal environments. From plastic pollution to sewage spills, the organization has been a vocal advocate for change and a driving force in the fight to preserve and protect our oceans.
One of SAS’s key achievements has been their successful campaign to secure government funding for the installation of over 300 public toilets along the UK’s coastline. This has helped to reduce the amount of human waste entering our oceans and has greatly improved the overall cleanliness of our beaches.
The organization’s efforts have also led to the creation of over 150 marine conservation zones, providing vital protection for our oceans and marine life. SAS’s beach clean-up events and campaigns have also helped to remove thousands of tons of marine litter from our beaches and oceans.
But SAS’s work doesn’t stop there. They also play an important role in educating the public about the impacts of pollution on our oceans and marine life, and encouraging individuals to take action to protect our coastal environments.
It is clear that the work of Surfers Against Sewage is of vital importance for the preservation of our oceans and coastal environments. As a society, we have a responsibility to protect and preserve these precious resources for future generations, and organizations like SAS are leading the way in this crucial fight.
In conclusion, we must all do our part to support the efforts of Surfers Against Sewage and other organizations working to protect our oceans and coastal environments. By working together, we can ensure a brighter future for our oceans and the marine life that calls it home.
What we think.
We are committed to protecting all we can, including our oceans and coastal environments, one reason we at Cora + Spink partnered with Work for Good, to raise funds for SAS.
Every bag sold, a portion of the sale is donated to SAS through Work for Good. This means that every bag bought makes a direct contribution to SAS, helping to support their efforts to protect our oceans and coastal environments.
This partnership is a great example of how businesses large and small can use their platform to make a positive impact on the world. By choosing to support organizations like SAS, we can raise awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans, whilst also directly contributing to their efforts through sales.
Whilst it’s not new way to support a charity we believe in, it’s you, the customer who is making a difference by buying something you’d want anyway. But support is not just made with purchases, sharing and talking about the work SAS does with friends and family is possibly the most import work we can do. We feel it’s a win-win situation for us all.
