1 year of Sky Ocean Rescue
One year ago Sky Ocean Rescue launched to inspire the nation to take action and make a change to help protect our oceans focusing on reducing single-use plastic.
Since then we have achieved a lot!
We reduced single-use plastic at sports events across Europe including The KIA Oval 100th Test, where 60% less bottles were sold!
We took Plasticus, a 250kg whale, on a tour of the UK
We launched 5 documentaries on Sky News; A Plastic Tide, A Plastic Whale, A Plastic Voyage, Arctic Peril and Dirty Business
And became proud partners of the Volvo Ocean Race team Turn the Tide on Plastic
In October we made three major commitments as a business
Including eliminating all single-use plastic packaging from newly launched products
From making 9 million people aware of our campaign
To avoiding approximately 450,000 plastic water bottles in our business in a year!
