It's the time of the year for Absurd Design to get involved with a new ocean charity and this year (2023), will be the turn of Surfers Against Sewage !
I do LOVE a beach dog walk and obviously, my dog Red drags me there on a regular basis! So I'm very passionate to help raise donations to keep our beaches clean and dog friendly. This is why I've chosen to support Surfers Against Sewage, so when you buy any upcycled Absurd Design product, 50p will be donated to make sure their fantastic work is recognised.
"Surfers Against Sewage began life 30 years ago as a response from the surfing community to the shocking state of our coastline. Back then, anyone who ventured into the water often found themselves swimming in raw sewage. There are tales of sanitary towels on heads and human poo sandwiched between bodies and boards. Enough was enough."
"What started as a local uprising is now a vital community of nationwide Ocean Activists fighting to see the ocean thrive. Our numbers have swelled well beyond just surfers, from swimmers to sandcastle builders, beach lovers to dog walkers, and everyone else in between who cares about our coastline. And our causes have swelled beyond water quality too. Because there are numerous threats to the ocean – and to our life on earth as a result."
