Why The Sea Is Drowning In Plastic

Gone Crabbing Launches Kids Awareness Clothing

Did you know we’ve produced more plastic in the last 10 years than we did in the last century? Approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used every year – that’s than one million bags filled every minute. Yet a plastic bag has an average “working life” of 15 minutes and 50% of anything made from plastic is used just once and then thrown away.

Although a lot of this is dumped in landfill, too much ends up in our seas and oceans with catastrophic effects. That’s why British seaside business www.gonecrabbing.co.uk has teamed up with UK charity, the Plastic Ocean Foundation, to encourage children to educate their parents about the issue.

Gone Crabbing’s awareness t-shirts and hoodies bear the message “Keep It Clean, Save Our Waves”. Each item is tagged using natural materials with details on Plastic Ocean and how children can get involved. The company will also be donating 10% of sales to the charity and will further raise awareness with a crabbing video being produced in summer 2014.

Available in Not In Our Sea Navy and Ban The Bag Blue, the t shirts retail at £10.99 for ages 3 – 8 and £13.99 for age 9 – 12 whilst the hoodies retail for £27.99 for all sizes. For stockists or to buy on-line visit www.gonecrabbing.co.uk
