bottle was designed personally with the beach in mind. On the front the design replicates a piece of
driftwood found whilst beachcombing in Thailand last year. The crab is to add fun and character to the
bottle. The great Beachcomber customers
have kindly named him 'Sheldon'. The
bottom of the bottle is screen printed in yellow to depict the sand and if you
look carefully you will see small footprints around the bottom. The bottle has
no paper label so is completely recyclable and is finished off with a cork
which is biodegradable.
Beachcomber helps with The
Ocean Cleanup and Recycling
25 year old man by the name of Boyan Slat from The Netherlands has started an
Organisation called "The Ocean Cleanup" which has a floating system
designed to capture plastics ranging from small pieces just millimeters in
size, up to large debris, including massive discarded fishing nets (ghost
nets). Models show that a full-scale cleanup system roll-out could clean 50% of
the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just five years. The Ocean Cleanup projects
to be able to remove 90% of ocean plastic by 2040.'
am very passionate about recycling and cleaning up our beaches. The plastic and
rubbish is rapidly growing and something needs to be done to reduce this
problem. My idea is that I want to promote recycling as well as cleaner oceans.
So for every empty used bottle that is returned to me, I will donate to the
Ocean Cleanup Organisation. I will collect any bottles when I deliver an order.
If you want to know more about the organisation please have a look at his
website www.theoceancleanup.com I'm sure you will find it very impressive.
