Charities we support
Flotsam & Jetsam are proud to support organisations that help clear beaches of pollution. For every bag purchased we donate 10% of profits between the two fantastic organisations listed below. As our first bag is inspired by Asia (specifically Bali) 50% of our donation goes to a charity specifically cleaning plastic and rubbish off beaches in Bali.
Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2019
On December 12th 2019, We will test our endurance, spirit and friendship, as we attempt to row unsupported, 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to help raise money and awareness for ocean conservation charities including Surfrider Foundation Australia and Marine Conservation UK.
Aiming to complete this epic expedition in 40 days or less, we will rowing in 2 hour shifts followed by 2 hours rest around the clock. The physical strain, exhaustion, sleep deprivation and possible hallucinations will test the extremes of teamwork and humankind. This is the world’s toughest rowing race.
For more than 30 years, Ocean Conservancy has brought together more than 12 million volunteers from 153 countries to participate in our annual International Coastal Cleanup. In that time, volunteers have picked up more than 220 million pounds of trash from the world’s beaches. We’re so proud of the work this global family of volunteers has achieved together, but with plastic production increasing around the world, it’s clear that the ultimate solution is to keep plastic out of the ocean in the first place.
Our goal is to cut down the amount of plastic entering the ocean by half within a decade.
We believe that the long term solution to plastic in our ocean is to transform the role that plastic plays in the worldwide economy. But with 8 million metric tons dumped in the ocean every year, the ocean can’t wait for long term solutions, and we need to act now. Plastic production is expected to double over the next ten years, and we need to make sure the accompanying wave of plastic waste never reaches our ocean.
One Island One Voice - OIOV
In 2017 OIOV organised Bali’s Biggest Beach Clean-up. Mobilising 12,000 people across 55 locations to clean-up 40 tons of trash.
In 2018 OIOV expanded its efforts. Clean-ups were organised across the island throughout every region, from our beaches to mountains, through our rivers and jungles.
We're calling on everyone - government, schools, youth, elders, expats and more - to join us in cleaning up our island together. Problems will not get solved, unless you get involved!
