From cleaning up marine litter and sewage pollution, to increasing awareness about toxic chemicals and climate change, UK-based Surfers Against Sewage aims to improve the quality of the world’s oceans and beaches. While educating the public about conserving and protecting the marine environment, SAS works to change government policy and industry practices for the better, too. This award-winning charity — with separate campaigns to combat marine litter, improve water quality, and educate about climate change (for starters) — is taking care of beaches one cigarette butt at a time.
