We’ve told you once before, and we’ll tell you again: NOW IS THE TIME TO HELP SAVE OUR SEAS. You can do your part in any way you like; as Christopher Clarey wrote in yet another yacht-racing-related New York Times piece last week, you can sponsor events or you can use your boat or club or class or race as a platform to bring awareness to the plight of the ocean.
But we want you to do something else with your money today. We want everyone who loves the oceans to dig deep, right now, and help the Seabin boys get over the hump to bring their ultra-simple, ultra-useful, ultra-clever labor of love to the market. You remember those affable Aussies who’ve dedicated their lives to cleaning up the ocean? Sure you do. And thanks in large part to you SA’ers, the Seabin have raised an awesome $205,000 of their $230,000 goal via IndieGogo!
So get to it, folks! Volvo Ocean Race – this one is tailor-made for you! America’s Cup – we promise if you buy a few of these, we’ll say something nice about you! And for the ordinary guy or gal, dig deep guys! Pledge another 100 bucks and proudly rock your Seabin t-shirt, or pre-order a Seabin for your Yacht Club today and help inspire both your members and your region to do their part and clean up our waterways! Don’t you want to be the first Yacht Club in your state/county/lake/ocean/world to be actively cleaning the water for future generations?
The video above gives the full story, and if you want more detail (and don’t mind awful sound), check out Andy and Pete’s interview with Mr. Clean at the METS show last month.
Shout to Sam Greenfield for the heads up.
