East Coast Surf is passionate about tackling ocean plastic pollution which is overwhelming our oceans. 

Take a look to see what we are doing to reduce our plastic footprint.

P L A S T I C

We have eliminated bubble wrap from our packaging. 

Our envelopes are composed of 60% post-consumer waste - with the lining made from shredded newspaper. 

We refuse single use plastics.  We only use pencils to write with and we drink (lots) of coffee from re-usable cups.

R E C Y C L E

Our mailing bags are made from a polythene film with a corn starch additive to produce a 100% biodegradable Biothene bag.

Our delivery boxes are 100% recyclable cardboard and we use 100% recycled paper void filling.

We use gum tape to seal our boxes.  You don't have to peel it off, it is 100% recyclable.

P A P E R

The paper we use is made from de-inked low-grade household waste material.  This is the most difficult waste material to be recycled, and often consigned to landfill.

For printing we use re-usable ink toner.

Save The Waves Coalition

We protect surf ecosystems.

A surf ecosystem is more than a wave: it’s the geophysical components, the plants and animals, and the human interactions that make a place special. Protecting surf ecosystems in turn protects marine habitats, maintains the integrity of the wave, and safeguards local livelihoods.

We focus on places around the world where iconic surfing waves overlap with biodiversity hotspots that are critically important for marine conservation. For us, surfing is a vehicle for larger coastal conservation efforts, i.e. ‘surf conservation’.

Surfers Against Sewage

We are a community dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife.  We fight long and hard to protect what we love and we won’t stop until it’s completely clean, safe and protected for everyone, forever.

From humble beginnings in Porthtowan Village Hall in 1990, we’ve stayed close to our roots and continue to be based just up the road at our St Agnes HQ where we can keep an eye on the sea.

Just 12 of us work in the office full time, but it’s really thanks to people like you who support our work through membership donations, volunteering, signing petitions, buying from our shop and spreading the word that allows our impact to be widely felt.
