The greatest threat to our oceans is the belief that someone else will save them

Sea Change - Definition:

“a profound or notable transformation”

‘Sea Change’ is a range of ethically sourced, environmentally conscious wines that support ocean conservation through direct partnerships with key ocean and marine focused charities.

 

The Problem

The plastic problem is overwhelming.

Statistics show that we have produced more plastic in the past 10 years than in the entire last century, with more than 300 million tonnes now being produced each year.

A trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year.

8 million tonnes of plastic end up in the ocean each year, affecting both sea life and human health alike.

50% of plastic is considered ‘disposable’, used once and thrown away.

The Project

 

‘Sea Change’ is a range of ethically sourced, environmentally conscious wines that support ocean conservation through direct partnerships with key ocean and marine focused charities.

The support is by way of a monetary donation from every bottle of Sea Change sold going directly to the chosen charity partners.

The range has been designed with minimal packaging in mind to reduce potential waste and to maximise its environmental credentials.

Key design elements include:

➢ ‘Grape Touch’ labels have been used, which consist of 15% recycled grape waste with the remaining raw materials coming from FSC certified forests ensuring environmental and social benefits.

➢ Specially selected closures that are Carbon Neutral, made from renewable plant based materials using 100% renewable energy and are fully recyclable.

➢ No capsule covers are used on the wine with a view to minimising unnecessary packaging and to enhance the ease of recycling.

Olive Ridley Project

The ‘Olive Ridley Project’ was established in response to the large number of sea turtles being injured and killed due to entanglement in abandoned fishing nets, also known as ‘ghost nets’. The charity aims to educate the public, reuse and reduce marine debris, as well as rescue and rehabilitate injured sea turtles.

The ORP Marine Turtle Rescue Centre at Coco Palm Dhuni in Baa Atoll can accommodate 7 turtle patients at a time. The turtles are cared for by the resident Turtle Veterinarian and a team of interns and volunteers. Injured turtles are taken to the rescue centre from all over the Maldives, mostly by boat, but some times by seaplane.

Guests at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu can visit the turtles and join the daily feeding sessions.

Depending on their injuries, turtle patients stay anywhere from a couple of days to several months; the longest staying patients are those suffering from buoyancy syndrome.

The aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and release all the turtle patients but sadly, some do pass away from their injuries.

Stay up to date with the turtle patients by following Olive Ridley on Facebook and Instagram, or visiting their website:

a plastic ocean foundation

Hong Kong based charity A Plastic Ocean Foundation is run by a group of dedicated scientists, educators, social entrepreneurs, scholars and journalists working towards changing the public’s attitude to plastic through science, education and policy advocacy.

 

‘Our addiction to plastic and our ‘disposable’ lifestyle are now starting to pose a threat to the survival of marine species, as well as ourselves which is why action is needed.’

 

The charity supports scientific research, allowing them to lobby Governments to drive policy and work within businesses and industry to develop more sustainable solutions and improve waste management processes.

Education is another key strategy for the charity. APOF have set up a programme called ‘Plastic Oceans Innovation Solutions Lab’ which encourages both students and teachers to use science, creativity and leadership to design solutions that help solve the plastic pollution crisis. Furthermore, the charity has targeted the wider public through the film ‘A Plastic Ocean’ which is aired through Netflix and has been screened over 800 times at schools, festivals, for Governments and other NGO’s, reaching millions around the world. The film aims to inspire communities and individuals to act and create the wave of change we need.

Rendu ocean

Rendu Ocean is currently the only Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) in mainland China focusing on marine pollution. Through four key operations – coastal clean-up, monitoring and researching, education and networking – their mission is to promote ocean conservation, restore the relationship between humans and the ocean and clean up our ocean.

 

Primarily, the organisation focusses on their coastal clean-up project called ‘Love the Origin of Our Life’ which, since 2007, has managed to remove 26.61 metric tonnes of litter from China’s coastline. The beaches are monitored persistently so that litter can be collected and used for data analysis which in turn can provide a scientific basis for Government policymaking.

 

The organisation also find that building networks and education is another key aspect in reducing the pollution problem. ‘The Ocean in the Life’ is an education programme targeted at grade 3-5 students which was set up by Rendu Ocean in 2013. The programme is delivered by around 200 volunteer teachers through school clubs, community Commonwealth courses, online courses and summer vocation courses.

 

Rendu Ocean have numerous funders, corporate partners from world leading companies, and Government partners and organisations who support their actions to protect our ocean.
