Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) is an environmental charity protecting our oceans. Founders of #PlasticFreeCoastlines & #PlasticFreeCommunities
SAS projects target coastal environmental issues including marine litter, sewage pollution, climate change, toxic chemicals, shipping, industry and coastal development. They aim to create measurable improvements in the state of our oceans, waves and beaches through changes in public behaviour, government policy and industry practices. The charity’s objectives are to undertake and promote for the benefit of the public the conservation, protection, improvement and ecologically sustainable management of the marine environment including associated land, shoreline and structures. To advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection, improvement and ecologically sustainable management of the marine environment including associated land, shoreline and structures.
SAS also believe that waves and surf spots deserve to be seen as part of UK heritage and should be afforded greater recognition and protection through political debate and legislation. SAS is working hard to raise the public awareness of these natural resources, the environmental, physical and geological factors that create waves and how they are integral to coastal ecosystems and can help support thriving, sustainable and economically successful coastal communities around the UK.
