There are some great beach clean events to get involved in and it is a great way to make a very practical difference . Or just carry out your own. For some hands-on marine conservation, all you need is a bag, some gloves and a few minutes.
2. BE A SUPER SUPPORTER
Undertake a sponsored event for Sea-Changers: swim, run, bike ride, parachute jump, walk, knit, bungee jump, bake, surf, or sail. If you would like to raise money for us, get in touch: [email protected]
If you’re shopping at Amazon, ebay, John Lewis, Argos, etc, you can raise money for us by signing up to ‘Give as you live’ and shopping via their site. You get the items you want and Sea-Changers gets at least 1% of however much you spend. And it doesn’t cost you a bean! Go to www.giveasyoulive.com then click on ‘Join for free’ to start.
4. BECOME A VOLUNTEER
We are a grant giving charity and don't do any direct conservation work. However, if you feel you can help with more administrative based tasks, and have time to give, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to find out more or have a chat about possibly becoming a Sea-Changers volunteer, drop us an email with your name and contact details.
5. DITCH PLASTIC
We all know the terrible impact of plastic on marine life. So buy yourself a reusable bag, invest in a reusable water bottle and consider all the other ways you could reduce your plastic purchasing.
6. DONATE ONLINE & BY TEXT
If you like what we are doing and want to help us to continue, please make a donationvia the Charities Aid Foundation.
7. SELL ON eBAY
Selling on eBay gives you a great opportunity to raise money for Sea-Changers; it's quick and easy. By making Sea-Changers your favourite charity on eBay, every time you sell, buyers will be asked if they would like to make a small donation to us. And, anyone selling on eBay can list an item for charity and donate a percentage. You list items as normal, then click 'Advanced Sell', choose 'Sea-Changers' and the percentage you wish to donate.
8. RECYCLE FOR SEA-CHANGERS
Recycle with Recycle for Charity. This is an easy way to raise money for us by recycling your old phone, inkjet cartridges and laser/toner cartridges.
Registering online is really quick and simple. Alternatively, we can send you recycling envelopes.
9. THINK BEFORE YOU FLUSH
Every day, people flush objects such as wet wipes, cotton buds, contact lenses, sanitary products, condoms and razors down the toilet instead of putting them in the bin. Do you? These have a negative impact on the water environment because they aren't biodegradable. From now on, only flush toilet paper and stuff that has passed through you!
10. BE A SOCIAL MEDIA SHARER
Connect with us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and share our posts to help raise awareness of Sea-Changers and the work we do.
