Reducing Waste Advice For August
Each month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, brings you a new and interesting advice to reduce waste & help protect the ocean in your everyday life. Here is tip number 8 for 2021:
Hello Beach Defenders,
From early morning strolls on the beach, picking up litter as I go, to evenings eating fish & chips along the promenade. I love August!
Last month I suggested to check out WAKEcups, a global zero waste/ reusables brand with a goal to end single use plastic. If you are looking for something with a personal touch you can get a lot of their amazing items personalised, click here to check out what you can personalise.
This month we are challenging you to make the switch to a Stainless Steel Safety Razor. The choices we make each day impact the environment. Sometimes it’s a big decision… sometimes it’s as small as swapping your disposable razors for a safety razor. You can reduce your plastic waste and switch over to a more ocean friendly razor, if cared for these safety razors can last a lifetime, all you need to do is replace the blades once they are dull. It can take a little getting use too, and your first time shaving with a safety razor can feel a little daunting, but use them just like you would your normal disposable razor and you'll soon get the hang of it.
Save 50% when you order yours today and don't forget to get a pack of replacement blades here.
What's on August 2021 - Ocean Helper
Thanks to your support in July we were able to donate over $65 to Shark Trust to help support their research and conservation effort. For August we will be supporting Surfers Against Sewage, their amazing team campaigns for cleaner and healthier oceans, and advocates for reducing plastic and protecting marine wildlife.
On the 7th we celebrated Lighthouse Day, taking a look at whether or not lighthouses are still relevant to modern society. They are an iconic staple of the coastlines but there aren't as many in use today. We also shared our Guide for a Plastic Free Picnic, so that you can make the most out of your long, warm August adventures.
Coming up this month we have Rum Day on the 16th, so look out for our email on Monday about a very special offer for all you budding pirates! There is also Men's Grooming Day on the 20th, where we will be taking a deep dive into your shaving habits and how you can make small changes to be more sustainable. We are wrapping up this month with an End of Summer sale, so keep your eyes peeled for our email which will have all the information you might need.
If you have a petition to share to support ocean conservation and marine wildlife protection, let us know and we would be happy to share or promote it! You can contact us either on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or via email directly - email@example.com
