Supporting Surfers Against Sewage and the Plastic Free Coastlines Initiative

04 February 2019

Our St Aubyn Estate’s Charity of the Year, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) know the importance of uniting against plastics.

Every year, 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean. Killing wildlife, irrevocably damaging eco-systems and destroying livelihoods, this plastic onslaught is having dramatic global effects. Exacerbated by the pandemic single-use plastic culture, we are now facing unprecedented levels of pollution and waste in our seas.

To help SAS to make a stand and unite people in the face of this crisis, we are holding events this February to push for plastic-free coastlines. Working together, we have the power to make a difference.

Here are two events that you can get involved in with us to stand up for our seas this February half-term.

Microplastics Monday

Taking place on Monday 18th this February half-term, our Microplastic Monday kicks off at 10am and finishes at midday. Combining forces we, at St Aubyn Estates, and Surfers Against Sewage are inviting beach heroes of all ages to get involved.

By attending the event you will learn what a nurdle is, help clean up our coastline and you will even receive a complimentary pass to visit St Michael’s Mount during February Half Term.  

Marine Monsters

A fun way to transform plastic washed up on our beaches into lasting mementos with a serious message, we are holding a Marine Monsters event with SAS. Held on Wednesday 20th February between 10am and 12am, this family-friendly event welcomes visitors and locals alike to channel their creativity and create some marine litter monsters.

Scour the beach beforehand, wash off your materials or use some of ours; all are welcome to attend and join in. Who will make the scariest monster of all?

If you would like to find out more about our partnership with SAS and their invaluable work, get in touch with us or visit Surfers Against Sewage’s website.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
