4 July 2018

Raglan Coconut Yoghurt have been on a mission this year to clean-up NZ's beaches, encouraging customers to do a clean-up and be sent free yoghurt. Over 42,000 pieces have been collected by individuals and community groups so far.

When co-founders Seb Walter & Tesh Randall came across the ocean clean-up work non-profit Sea Cleaners have been doing for the past 16 years, they were incredibly impressed and wanted to get behind their efforts. "Meeting Captain Hayden Smith and hearing about how they have collected over 170 shipping containers worth of rubbish floating around in our oceans was equal parts inspiring and heart-breaking," says Tesh. "What they have achieved with their small fleet of boats and volunteers deserves a huge thank-you from the whole country."

Raglan Coconut Yoghurt has pledged 50 cents to Sea Cleaners from each jar of their best-selling flavour, Natural Greek-Style 700ml, sold over the month of July. They are hoping to raise over $4,000 for the work Sea Cleaners are doing.

"We are so stoked to have this support," says Hayden Smith, "Without donations we would be unable to do what we're doing so we're really grateful."

Tough call, but my bet for the most bizzarro moment came when Putin offered Russian investigators to help out with the probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 US election... Trump welcomed it, of course. More>>
