This summer, the National Marine Aquarium (NMA) in Plymouth is encouraging everyone to say #CheersToTheOcean in a bid to raise important funds. Friends of Glass, a worldwide community that promotes the positive uses of glass packaging, will donate £1 to the NMA for every selfie or photo of people using or recycling glass posted on social media with the hashtag #CheersToTheOcean. The best submissions will also win vouchers from Responsible Travel.
The NMA is hoping to raise £5,000 over the next few months through the campaign, which will be used to continue its marine conversation programmes.
Nicola Bridge, Head of Discovery and Learning at the National Marine Aquarium, said: “As a marine conservation education charity, we rely on visitor funds and donations to continue our mission to connect people with our Oceans. The funds raised from the Friends of Glass campaign will help us to continue our vital work with students and teachers to help them understand the importance of the Oceans. There is no denying that we must work together as individuals and communities to ensure that our Oceans become healthier for the benefit and enjoyment of all.
“We encourage everyone to get involved in this great campaign and raise a glass to say #CheersToTheOcean this summer and beyond.”
