Surfers Against Sewage
Surfers Against Sewage is a UK-based non-profit organisation campaigning for an end to the discharge of raw and partially treated sewage and toxic waste into the sea and inland waters.
Clean beaches and rivers are a resource vital to the economy and well being of any nation. Sewage-free coastal and inland waters provide beach goers and recreational water-users with a clean safe environment to enjoy, without fear of becoming ill.
Since 1990, SAS have campaigned to clean up the rivers and coastal waters of the United Kingdom. At the end of 1999, the British Government agreed an £8.5 billion spend to improve the aquatic environment.
“Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) is an environmental charity protecting the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches for all to enjoy safely and sustainably, via community action, campaigning, volunteering, conservation, education and scientific research.”
SAS has over 50,000 active supporters across the UK.
SAS is a registered charity in England and Wales No: 1145877
