We are a member of the Surfers Against Sewage 250 Club.
What does that mean for you? It shows that Eat Play Bark put their money where their mouth is. We are passionate about reducing plastic pollution which is why we use recyclable food pails and it’s also why we decided to make a long term financial commitment to support the great work of Surfers Against Sewage.
Surfers Against Sewage are tackling the issue of plastic pollution on many fronts; they organise regular beach cleans, they have a series of school programmes to educate future generations and they petition government and industry to tackle the issue of single use plastic.
Buying biscuits from Eat Play Bark means you’ll get delicious biscuits for your dog(s) and you’ll help us tackle plastic pollution.

Here’s how they describe themselves:
Not just surfers, not just sewage.
We began as a response by the surfing community to the dreadful state of our beaches. Those hardy souls who ventured into the water back then often found themselves swimming in raw sewage. There’s tales of sanitary towels on heads and human poo sandwiched between bodies and boards. Completely unacceptable.
The campaign grew loud, proud and strong and thanks to the passion and perseverance of our members — the UK now enjoys some of the cleanest beaches in Europe.
Of course it’s not just surfers who care passionately about our coastlines — our members are swimmers, dog walkers, paddleboarders, beach cleaners, kite surfers, sandcastle builders, ice cream eaters and sun bathers too. We protect it because we love it and that’s where we feel most at home.
We’ll always care about Water Quality issues and our Safer Seas Servicecontinually monitors sewage spills in real time on beaches around the UK. But ‘Plastic is the new sewage’ as it is now the biggest threat to our beaches, our precious marine eco-system and our happiness.
