Our world is facing environmental and social crises. Climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions, plastic polluted oceans, deforestation and ever increasing wildfires etc., our planet and its population are under huge pressure. There are many wonderful environmental organisations and nonprofits supporting a sustainable future through education, fundraising and specific actions.
We would like to do our bit in fighting one particular issue. Our plastic polluted oceans. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, of which the majority spills out from rivers. A portion of this plastic travels to ocean garbage patches, where it gets caught in a vortex of circulating currents alongside plastic from other sources (e.g. offshore fishing activities). If no action is taken, plastic will increasingly impact our ecosystems, health, and economies.
The Ocean Cleanup develop and scale technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. We pledge to donate on a monthly basis, £1 (GBP) per item sold via our website, with a minimum of £10 per month, starting December 2022. We would love to get involved too. Please consider a donation when buying one of our beautiful, sustainable products or even when just browsing our website. We will provide regular updates on the organisations activities and our donations, so make sure to sign up for our newsletter.
