Surfshark starts a campaign to help fight Ocean plastic pollution
The company commits to doubling every user donation in support to the efforts of ocean protection by the Surfrider Foundation.
Riding against the wave of the holiday rush, privacy protection service Surfshark has launched a campaign supporting ocean cleaning efforts. Under this initiative, Surfshark will match every donation of their subscribers and contribute the double amount to the Surfrider Foundation.
According to the recent studies, there are 5,25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean today. Of which, 269,000 tons float on the surface. Also, it is estimated that approximately 8 million tons of the newly produced plastic end up in the oceans every year.
This holiday season Surfshark has decided to take a different approach on consumerism and encourage people to voluntarily donate a part of their savings from the VPN’s Christmas bargain to the ocean cleaning efforts.
Every new subscriber of Surfshark privacy protection service will be able to choose to donate a selected sum of money to the Surfrider Foundation. In January 2019, at the end of the campaign period, Surfshark will double the number of collected contributions and donate it to the Surfrider Foundation.
The Surfrider Foundation, to which Surfshark will donate all the collected proceedings, was established in 1984 by a group of surfers to protect beaches from overdevelopment and pollution. Since then is has become one of the largest non-profit grassroots organizations focusing on ocean and beach protection.
