Salcombe Brewery Co. is delighted to reveal that it has partnered with Too Good to Go to help reduce its waste and just donated over £1000 to The Seahorse Trust, which has been raised through a five pence donation for every bottle sold of its Seahorse beer. These announcements have been made as Salcombe Brewery Co embarks on its journey to B Corp status.
Jordan Mace, Managing Director of Salcombe Brewery Co. explains: “Constantly improving our sustainability credentials has always been a core objective for us so, when we discovered Too Good To Go, we jumped at the chance to reduce our waste. This clever app allows us to sell our cosmetically damaged products and any short dated stock to a wide range of customers, at a reduced price, rather than throwing it away. It is a new partnership that came about as part of a review of our processes as we work towards B Corp status.”
Jordan continues: “The surrounding coastal environment has always been hugely important to Salcombe Brewery Co. The Salcombe Estuary is one of the few places in the UK where you can find the rarer of the two species of seahorse and we partnered with The Seahorse Trust four years ago to raise funds to support these endangered creatures. We give a regular donation to The Seahorse Trust and are pleased to be handing over another £1,198.25 this month. This money has been raised by making a donation of 5p from every bottle of Seahorse sold.”
Salcombe Brewery is in the process of working towards B Corp status. Certified B Corps, are companies verified by B Lab to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. Becoming a Certified B Corporation is a rigorous, comprehensive process that involves reviewing a company’s processes, procedures and ethos.
The Seahorse Trust was founded in 1999 by Neil Garrick-Maidment to preserve and conserve the natural world, especially the marine environment, with the seahorse as its flagship species. The Trust makes a difference through education, conservation and campaigning for protected areas.
