Surfers Against Sewage campaign to protect the marine environment on behalf of surfers, wave riders and water users all over the UK. The threats to our coastline exist in many forms, including sewage and chemical spills, marine litter, impacts on wave quality and rights of access.
The SAS Christmas card is an important fundraiser and is a great way to convey the campaign message to friends and family. On the back of each card there’s a little information about marine pollution and how to support SAS by becoming a member
This year’s SAS Christmas cards emphasise the problem of marine litter. Marine litter pollutes our beautiful beaches and can take hundreds of years to degrade. It’s hazardous to wildlife and our health, costs tax payers millions to clear up and nobody wants to see it in the lineup. The cards come in a pack of 4 beautiful designs, all by illustrator Kate Sutton and they are printed 100% recycled card. They cost £3.50/£3.15 (member’s price) for a mixed pack of 8 cards (2 of each design) or £4/£3.60 (member’s price) for a pack of 10 of one design.
The designer of the cards is Kate Sutton and she has been working as a Freelance Illustrator since graduating 5 years ago. Her work is heavily influenced by nature, which stems from her love of being outside. Trees and woodland creatures are a common sight in her drawings, along with repeat patterns and hand lettering, other influences include folk art, maps, and old children’s books. She loves to sew and has a new found love of screen printing.
