Call for Pitchfest applications
09 Sep 2021
Applications for the Ocean Impact Pitchfest 2021 are closing in two weeks. Entrants have until 21st September to submit their application.
This year, Zip Water is sponsoring the Plastic Pollution Solution Award to support innovators in their mission to reduce plastic waste, a sustainability cause close to our hearts.
Plastics can be very harmful to the environment. Millions of animals are killed every year by plastics, and nearly 700 species, including endangered ones, are known to have been affected by them.
Most of the deaths to animals are caused by entanglement or starvation. Seals, whales, turtles, and other animals are strangled by abandoned fishing gear or discarded six-pack rings, and microplastics have been found in more than 100 aquatic species, including fish, shrimp, and mussels.
We are proud to support this initiative of @oceanimpactorg to help find, support, and accelerate innovative solutions to transform ocean health. With $150,000 in cash prizes and an additional $150,000 of products and support to help accelerate the Winners and Finalists this is an opportunity not to be missed.
