Ben & Jerry’s
On behalf of the entire Ben & Jerry’s team, thank you so much for hosting us. We had an amazing day. The team said they thoroughly enjoyed their time and learnt so much about the incredible work you are doing at Surfrider. And, it was great for everyone to hear how we can continue to educate others and become activists ourselves!
“Fantastic day! Your knowledge and enthusiasm has inspired all of us. The discussion with the team afterwards was about what we are going to change in the office. So, I would say it was a great success!”
“Thanks to the whole team at Surfrider for taking us through the Marine Pollution Program. The Pinterest team absolutely loved it and we learnt so much! Crazy how much litter we ended up diverting in a short amount of time.”
