About Surfers Against Sewage

Surfers Against Sewage is a national marine conservation and campaigning charity dedicated to protecting the ocean and we won’t stop until it’s completely clean, safe and protected for everyone.

From our headquarters in St Agnes, Cornwall, we inspire, unite and empower communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife. Our campaigns tackle environment issues including marine plastic pollution, water quality, climate change and coastal development.

Our vision is simple…

Thriving ocean, thriving people.

This simple phrase captures everything that matters to us, not just in SAS, but humankind. It’s a mantra, a motto, a rallying cry to drive us on, with a huge collective goal to help tilt our delicate planet back on its axis. This sounds huge, but when you love what you do, and work as one, that future draws ever nearer.

We value…

  • Openness: Together, we’re passionate, down to earth campaigners, born out of the community, with a deep unrelenting love of the ocean. We believe in building diverse, inclusive and active communities.
  • Dynamism: We are dynamic, radical, active, energetic doers and campaigners. From the beaches to the front benches, we bring people together, empowering them to get stuck in and make real change happen.
  • Authenticity: We are human, doing our best. When we don’t get things right, we learn from it. We believe in authenticity. You can’t fake trust.
  • Creativity: We are creative and entrepreneurial. We move fast, think far and believe the future is bright. From our humble home, we make waves (of all shapes and sizes) to improve our greatest gift. A healthy ocean = a healthy society.
