Happy Earth Month! Educate. Advocate. Celebrate.

Thank you, Stasher Squad!

You helped raise $100K during Earth Month. Here's how the Surfrider Foundation will put it to use:
  • ...supporting Surfrider's initiatives to carry out policy campaigns at the local, state and federal level to eliminate single-use plastic pollution at the source.
  • ...supporting the Surfrider Foundation's hands-on volunteer programs that remove trash from our coasts and waterways and prevent plastic pollution from ever reaching our ocean.
  • ...supporting Surfrider's national network of over 100 Student Clubs- the next generation of coastal defenders as they engage with plastic pollution policy initiatives.
  • ...supporting Surfrider's Ocean Friendly Restaurants program which supports small business relationships as they seek sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic take-out and dining items.
  • ....supporting Surfrider's chapter network in their effort to host over 1000 beach cleanups in 2021, removing hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash and plastic from our beaches

Our mission

At Stasher, we’re on a mission to fulfill our vision of a waste-free world. That’s why we created the first-ever pure platinum silicone storage bag — to help reduce the 11M metric tons of plastic that enter our ocean each year (yikes). Today, thanks to you, we’re a global Squad of joyful eco-warriors, working together for change. And we’re about to make even more waves through our partnership with The Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches, for all people.

Your impact

To celebrate Earth Month, we’ll donate $1 to The Surfrider Foundation for every Stasher bag sold in April. That’s right, $1 for every bag sold — not every purchase, but every bag — will directly support The Surfrider Foundation’s work to protect our Mama Earth.

Since Earth Month is about action AND awareness, our friends at The Surfrider Foundation have shared their expertise on the threats to our ocean and coasts, why plastic pollution is such a pervasive problem, and the role each of us can play in protecting our planet. 

The ocean connection

Around 70% of the Earth’s surface is ocean, and it plays a critical role in maintaining the health of our planet. No matter where you live or how far you are from the shore, you’re in a watershed. That means that you have the power to impact the health of the ocean right from your community. From the products we buy to how we dispose of waste, and even the way our homes and public spaces are landscaped — all of our choices make their way downstream to the ocean. And one of the simplest ways we can all help offset our own impacts on the ocean is by reducing the amount of plastic we consume.

Plastic pollution

The plastic pollution crisis

Of all the litter and waste clogging our natural world, single-use plastic is one of the  worst offenders. We asked Surfrider to share the real scale of the problem. Brace yourself — these numbers aren’t pretty.

Change adds up

So, we have our work cut out for us — but we can do anything when we all do something! For starters, we can commit to being more mindful about what we buy, use, and discard. Because good or bad, our actions add up. Choosing and reusing Stasher bags is a great step in the right direction. On top of that, here are some ways to make waves in your everyday life:
