St Austell Printing Company has joined the Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) 250 Club.

Based in St Agnes, SAS is a national charity dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife. The 250 Club is a business membership scheme designed to support SAS in its ongoing campaigns to help protect the UK’s coastal environment.

SAPC’s operations manager, Beth Mayman, said: “We’re passionate about sustainability and the environment.

“Being based in Cornwall and overlooking St Austell Bay we have a particular interest in ensuring our oceans and marine life are looked after. Many members of our team and their families choose to spend time around the coastline and we also have a couple of talented surfers here too. We’re very pleased to support SAS in the important work they do raising awareness of the challenges our seas face.”

SAPC, which has been named the UK’s most environmentally-friendly printing company, regularly works with Surfers Against Sewage on printing and mailing projects in its modern sustainable factory – which features one of Cornwall’s largest roof-based solar panel arrays.

Jacey Russell, fundraising and administration officer for SAS, said: “The 250 Club is so important for SAS, not only because members help us to raise vital funds to continue our work, but also because being a 250 Club member is being part of a community of amazing businesses driving forward a movement for change.

“It means a lot to us to have this grassroots support, especially from local businesses like SAPC, as it helps us to stay connected to our local environment too.”
