Today Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) campaigners have sent identifiable marine litter back to the manufacture wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper as part of the award winning Return To Offender campaign. These rubbish presents were found on beaches around the UK.
The Return To Offender campaign acknowledges that these manufacturers didn’t drop the litter on beaches themselves, but urges manufactures to improve their anti littering message, reduce their packaging, invest in low impact packaging and support grass roots anti-litter campaigns.
SAS supporters all around the UK can actively participant in the Return To Offender campaign. Simply downloading the Return To Offender letter from sas.org.uk sign it and send it to the manufacturers with their litter found on our beaches.

A massive iceberg is bearing down on Australia.
The iceberg, which is more than double the size of Manhattan, broke off from the Antarctic Shelf ten years ago and has been drifting ever since.

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) campaigners and volunteers led the march of 50,000 people marching against climate change at Stop Climate Chaos’ The Wave march on the 5th of December.
Marching around the streets of London, The Wave had an estimated 50,000 people calling for strong climate change commitments from world leaders at the UN Climate summit in Copenhagen that starts today.
SAS campaigners wore wetsuits, carried surfboards and had their faces painted blue for the march. The surfers started at the front line of the march in Grosvenor Square and lead the event to Parliament.
SAS, who are members of the Stop Climate Chaos coalition, joined together with many other NGOs in calling on world leaders to implement targets to limit global warming to a maximum increase of 2 degrees Celsius. This is achievable and will limit some of the devastating impacts climate change is threatening.
