Plastic pollution has been a hot topic recently and is one of the biggest environmental problems the planet is facing. Powderkeg Brewery is joining forces with Surfers Against Sewage to raise money to tackle plastic pollution, and increase awareness of the problem. A new beer, aptly named ‘Brainwave’, will see 10p in every pint sold go straight to Surfers Against Sewage to make our coastlines a cleaner, brighter, better place for us all to enjoy.
Brainwave is a light, summery ale perfect for sunny afternoons by the sea. Balancing delicate, sweet malt with Cascade and Crystal hops, this beer will leave you feeling as fresh as a clear blue (plastic free) ocean. The beer will launch on June 16th with a series of events highlighting how plastic waste affects all of us from coast to city you can find more info on the facebook event page.
Surfers Against Sewage have campaigned for cleaner seas for nearly 40 years, and are tackling plastic pollution as their #1 priority. They are uniquely placed to inspire, equip and unite local communities in response to this plastic pollution overwhelming our oceans, creating a growing environmental movement to reverse and remove the threat.
The charity was instrumental in the campaign for the single-use plastic bag charge, which has already eliminated 6 billion plastic bags from the UK, demonstrating the dramatic impact of campaigning for legislative change. They are now campaigning for the introduction of a deposit return system on throwaway plastic bottles, and the first few weeks of 2017 saw over 200,000 people join them in this call with their Message In A Bottle petition.
We are super excited to be working with another forward thinking orginasation from the South West as we continue to try and make the world a better place in our own little way 🙂
