The Hidden Sea wine, and purpose-led global racing championship, SailGP, have joined forces in an eight-year partnership to raise awareness of climate change and ocean health, and remove plastic from the ocean. The Australian wine brand is a premium company with one razor-focused mission: to remove plastic from the ocean. The company will drop into iconic coastal locations around the globe as SailGP’s exclusive, like-minded wine partner. In the UK, the company took over Plymouth and landed in style. Along with Team GB, the Duchess of Cambridge, and a host of high-profile guests all ready to enjoy an epic weekend of sports, fine foods, drinks and who’s who of the sailing world, guests watched national teams battling in short, intense races.
In partnership with ReSea Project, The Hidden Sea removes the equivalent of 10 single-use plastic bottles from the ocean for every bottle of wine sold globally. The Hidden Sea has already removed over 15 million plastic bottles and aims to remove one billion by 2030.
Together, SailGP and The Hidden Sea will aim to remove over one million single-use plastic bottles from the ocean during their global, multi-year partnership.
Additionally, The Hidden Sea is taking the incredible and thought-provoking art installation “Plastic Tap” around the world, with it. Created by artist and activist Benjamin Von Wong, it depicts a giant tap spewing out single-use plastic waste.
Justin Moran, Co-founder of The Hidden Sea, said: “This is the coming together of two companies that are driven to affect real change. If we do not take drastic action, plastic waste will outnumber fish in the oceans by 2050. There is no Plan B, we must act now to save the sea. Teaming up with an organisation that shares the same ethos of inspiring people worldwide to take action, will boost our mission and help save the sea.”
