Environment and Sustainability
Bude Sea Pool aligns itself with other local and national charities that protect marine environment and promotes sustainability.
Friends of Bude Sea Pool is a partner in the Bude Climate Partnership. This group is made up of local environmental organisations that are working together to develop positive community-led climate-change responses throughout the wider Bude area. They have recently received £2million from the National Lottery’s Climate Fund for several projects to spearhead a community respons e to the climate crisis and rising sea levels.
With being a front runner in the ReFill movement that started in Bude, Friends of Bude Sea Pool continues to be committed to sustainability principles, seeking where possible to procure locally-made, ethically-produced items for sale in our Shop.
Other initiatives include the BorrowBoard Scheme, created in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy, for visitors to rent sustainable unsnappable bodyboards provided by local business, Zuma Jay. Some local businesses have also bought some of these and donate via Visitor Giving.
