Boatbreakers partner with Sea-Changers to raise money for Marine based Charities in the UK.
The Boatbreakers team are excited to announce that we have formed a charitable partnership with Sea-Changers. Sea-Changers is a charity that helps to raise funds for various marine conservation projects across the UK.
We first became aware of what Sea-Changers do through the work they are doing with the Southampton boat show. After looking at what they get up to we thought they would be a perfect fit for a charitable partnership.
Sea-Changers are an environmental partner of British Marine at this year’s boat show. They helped to organise a beach clean in the local area and we thought that the work they do would be a good cause to help.
Our idea was that we could donate 10% of profit That we make from each boat we dispose of. This would mean that when someone decides to scrap their boat they will also be helping to keep our marine environment in the UK clean and healthy.
Sea-Changers will distribute the donated money to a range of projects all of which are aimed at either:
- Addressing the root causes of marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK.
- Preventing or reducing negative impact on UK coastal in marine environments and/or species
- Adding to the body of knowledge about marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK.
Sea-Changers particularly focuses on innovative and grassroots projects which galvanise community action and on projects which increase the number of people taking action for marine conservation. For example, this can be activities such as organised group beach cleans.
Boatbreakers also hope that through the partnership the issue of end-of-life-boats will get more attention. Sea-Changers help to highlight a number of partners who are all doing their bit to clean up our shores and coastlines.
We feel that Boatbreakers is doing our bit by cleaning up old boats. They may not be ocean plastics but they are made of glass-reinforced plastic. Boatbreakers main aim is to clear all of the UK’s Harbours, Rivers, Coastlines and other waterways of dead boats.
