The Independent marks Earth Day with donation to Surfers Against Sewage

To mark Earth Day 2024, The Independent is donating £20,000 of ad inventory to the charity Surfers Against Sewage, to support its invaluable work. 

Surfers Against Sewage is a UK grassroots environmental charity that campaigns to protect the ocean. It was created in 1990 by a group of Cornish surfers, fighting to clean up the water that was making them unwell. Today, Surfers Against Sewage campaigns on all that threatens the sea, from sewage to plastic, mobilising communities of ocean activists to take on the polluters.

Andrew Morley, Chief Revenue Officer at The Independent says “The Independent is committed to making change happen through fighting for a better, fairer world, not just on Earth Day but every day. We’re really pleased to be supporting Surfers Against Sewage: their work has never been needed more.”

Josh Harris, Head of Communications at Surfers Against Sewage says: “With an upcoming general election, water companies setting out their long-term investment plans and crunch time in the development of the Global Plastics Treaty, 2024 is the year to turn the tide on the sewage and plastic crisis that threatens our rivers and seas. That’s why this support to reach and mobilise communities across the UK is more vital than ever before – it’s time to take on the polluters, and win.”
