September Roundup

Setting up our campaign

By Jess Rego on October 5, 2017

Wow, September has been a crazy whirlwind of a month for us. September was the month we went from talking about rowing an ocean to actually planning to row across the Atlantic. Recap, that’s 3 women traveling 3,000 miles in around 50 days all to raise awareness and funds for plastic pollution and ocean clean up efforts.

So what have we done?

And that’s about it.. I know, what haven’t we even been up to?

To think that we thought that was a busy month when we’ve already had an insanely hectic October and we’re only a few days in. (Also the reason why this blog is late to the publish, please forgive me!) I can’t wait for the end of October to share with you all the exciting things we’re working on right now.

I’ll leave you with some asks… whether you have found yourself here by chance or by one of the Status Row members bullying you into it (we love you, we promise) we ask you help us spread our mission. Be the microphone to our voices and help spread awareness of plastic pollution, ocean cleanups and our goal to cross the Atlantic. How?

Like, comment, follow, share - we’ll be constantly updating everyone on our social channels so make sure you don’t miss out on any news. If you know any companies whose ethos align with our mission please, please, please introduce us. If you personally would like to contribute to our campaign check out our donations page.

And; if you would like to get involved at a corporate level drop us a note at hello@statusrow.com and we can discuss our sponsorship packages.

Most importantly though, rethink your plastic use. 300 Million tonnes of plastic is produced every single year and more than half of that is in the form of single use items. Say no to the straw or plastic bag, find ways to reuse things you do have and recycle whenever possible.

Many thanks!
