Continued support for Surfers Against Sewage

June 14th, 2017

Brewers are delighted to continue their support of Surfers Against Sewage again this year.  As a company passionate about supporting communities, charities and local projects, the introduction of the 5p bag charge in October 2015 has enabled Brewers to further increase the support they give.  

The proceeds from the sales of plastic carrier bags have been donated in full to Surfers Against Sewage.  An apt recipient as they dedicate their efforts to protect the UK’s oceans and shorelines carrying out tireless work to clean up the beaches and waves.

Their activities to improve and protect the UKs beaches and waters continue and with a specific focus towards tackling marine plastic pollution as their number 1 priority.

Surfers Against Sewage operate a Safer Seas Service - a free app to alert any coastal water users to raw sewage leaks or reduced water quality as a result of heavy rainfall.

Surfers Against Sewage also collaborate with other key bodies on ocean related scientific studies and research.  Their most recent, with findings due to be published in 2016, has been testing whether there is a link between exposure to coastal waters and the presence of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Brewers pledge to donate the proceeds from the plastic bag charge from now until April 2018 to Surfers Against Sewage to support their ongoing campaigns and activities.
