At EBB & FLO we believe in the power of collective action to create meaningful change. That's why we are proud to support like-minded charitable causes.
In 2017, thanks to local crowdfunding efforts, we made a commitment to our community and our sustainability goals by investing in a 2 Minute Beach Clean (2MBC) station, the first of its kind in our area. The 2MBC station is a powerful collaboration tool that empowers people to take action against litter and plastic pollution. The station provides the tools and resources for individuals to clean the beach and make a difference.
In 2018, we invested funds to support the Nurdle initiative, which aims to remove and recycle marine debris from coastlines across the globe. As part of our commitment to sustainability and community collaboration, we purchased a Nurdle Trommel machine to aid our efforts in tackling marine pollution. We remain the only Nurdle Trommel custodians on the East Coast of the UK.
In 2018, we made another investment towards promoting environmental education, by purchasing Pollu Toys - plush toys specially designed by direct action conservation charity, Sea Shepherd to teach children about the harmful impact of plastic pollution on our wildlife. These toys are an effective way to sensitively engage children in learning about environmental issues and inspire them to take action to protect our planet. We invite you to check out the Pollu Toys YouTube video to learn more about this initiative.
We are also proud to have partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, donating a total of $1365.06, which helped to plant 11,151 trees across the globe. Eden work with local communities to restore forests on a large scale, thus providing job opportunities, whilst protecting ecosystems, and helping to mitigate climate change. Eden aim to restore forests, and support local communities to achieve economic self-sufficiency. You can view our profile here.
