After five years, Surfers Against Sewage have decided to give their website a bit of an overhaul, to perfectly coincide with Fairtrade Fortnight.
It’s taken a fair bit of time to complete as they’ve been trying to do it inbetween actions, lobbying activities, meetings and talks. But now it’s done and has become the brand new first port of call for keeping up to date with SAS actions and activities.
In particular the campaign sections are a lot clearer and there’s a ‘TAKE ACTION’ section on the homepage that they’ll be asking you to use when they need support for particular issues. SAS have over 20 campaigns on the go at the moment so there’s a lot of support they need from you right now! Keep an eye on it, as it’s a key campaign tool for generating momentum on an issue.
There are new sections where you can watch SAS films, see cool pictures in the Picture Gallery and find out who your local SAS rep is. The Team SAS section also features profiles of some of the World’s top surfing talent backing the SAS campaign for clean, safe recreational water for everyone.
SAS-ZINE is where you can sign up to get email action alerts. By doing this you can be the first to hear about and be a part of SAS actions on the campaign frontline.
It’s also super-easy and fast to use the SAS shop now. By buying SAS merchandise you’re not only supporting SAS campaigns but also getting items and garments that are less polluting in their own right. SAS first started using organic cottons and environmentally friendly dyes in 2003. Now in 2007 all their clothes are produced with 100% organic cotton and printed using PVC and phthalate free inks. They also a growing portfolio of quirky and useful recycled and fairly traded products!
