Reducing Plastic Waste - Tip of the Month!
Every month we are aiming to bring you a new and interesting tip to reduce plastic waste in your everyday life. This month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, has this fabulous tip for you:
Hello Ocean Helpers!
Fall is here and I am ready for it! Bring on those chilly walks with the dog on the beach, wetsuit swimming when the storms aren't ripping along the coastlines and sea birds migrating. Stay safe and warm out there people!
As with every month this year I once again have a new tip to help you reduce waste and strive to use less plastic. My tip for October is Reusable Bamboo Cutlery. I personally have a couple of sets and keep one in my rucksack ready for any occasion and the other in my coat in case I get caught without my bag. They are fabulous and have meant that I haven't accepted disposable, single use plastic in years!
Looking for a great set of Pocket Bamboo Cutlery? Check out Ocean Helpers here, order yours today!
What's on October 2020 - Ocean Helper's
We are super excited to announce that last month we were able to donate over $250 to The Ocean Cleanup all thanks to our fabulous customers support throughout September! We loved seeing you all taking part in litter picks and beach cleans all month long.
Throughout October we are fighting to save sea turtles, so this month not only will every item purchased from Ocean Helper save a sea turtle hatching through the Billion Baby Turtle Project but we will also be donating 10% of our profits to Bald Head Island Conservancy to support their awesome conservation work protecting the sea turtles and wildlife on Bald Head Island. Learn more about them and their work on their website, click here...
We started October with International Coffee Day and are annual reminder to take your own coffee cup with for your morning brew. Then on the 4th we had World Animal day where our focus was on Beluga Whales followed by World Octopus Day on the 8th were we learned about the incredible octopi around the world!
Coming up in the next week we have two petitions for your, the first is about Super Trawlers and their damaging effects on marine wildlife, then we also are looking at the potential for a Global Ocean Treaty.
We are always on the lookout for petition to share to support ocean conservation and marine wildlife protection, if you have any you want us to share or have a cause you need the world to hear about then we would love to hear from you! You can contact us either on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or via email directly - email@example.com
Then Hagfish Day on the 21st and we are updating and releasing our Gift Guide for 2020! Then we have one final petition to Walmart pleading with them to put an end to the millions of plastic bags that they hand out. Be sure to follow us on Social Media and keep an eye out for our emails to stay up to date!
