STOROPACK SUPPORTS BIG BLUE OCEAN CLEANUP IN CREATING NEW MARINE NATURE RESERVES
Storopack begin its collaboration with the Big Blue Ocean Cleanup in 2018. Initially carrying out beach cleans to remove microplastics and raise awareness, then sponsoring the international cleanup programme this now extends to supporting the rewilding Marine Nature Reserve initiative.
The Big Blue Ocean Cleanup is creating exciting new Marine Nature Reserves (MNRs) across the British Isles. Starting in Scotland the first rewilding Marine Nature Reserve will be sponsored by companies purchasing 3 metre x 3 metre squares to help nature thrive, reverse species extinction and tackle climate change. The end target is 500,000 square metres.

Storopack Managing Director Richard Pulfrey comments “We are delighted to announce thanks to our valued customers who have joined us in supporting this important new initiative so far the total purchased value is £1250. These combined efforts mean the Big Blue Ocean Cleanup is nearer to achieving its 500,000 square metres target and creating the new reserve in its fight to prevent marine pollution, protect endangered species and tackle climate change.”
