Win a trip to Biarritz

We’re putting together a beach clean-up crew, and we want you to be part of it. Will you raise a glass to the ocean, for the chance to join us in France?

Will you raise a glass to the ocean, for the chance to join us in France?

How does an all-expenses-paid trip to Biarritz sound?

In Spring 2019, we’re sending a team of pan-European ocean lovers to the beautiful Atlantic coast for a lively day of beach clean-up, delicious food, and professional surfing lessons.

To enter, all you have to do is raise a glass to our oceans, snap a photo and share it with us on Twitter telling us why you should be part of our crew. Are you passionate about protecting marine life? Do you spend your weekends picking up at the beach? Do you just really, really want to go surfing?


Why glass?

We want to celebrate our love for the ocean, and make sure that we can continue to enjoy it for years to come. That’s why, as Friends of Glass, we’re working with Surfrider Foundation Europe for cleaner seas – and we’re asking you to join our global toast to the ocean. Glass packaging is endlessly recyclable, free of contaminants and will never end up as micro particles in our food chain. We can all play our part in protecting our ocean, and it starts with something as simple as buying and recycling just one extra glass bottle or jar each week.


  1. 1. Snap a photo representing your love for the ocean.
    Glass bottles, glass jars, glass flacons… Get creative, but make sure you include glass!
  1. 2. Share it on Twitter using the hashtag for your country and tell us why we should pick you.
    We’ll be choosing one winner to represent each country, so be sure to use the right hashtag for your country:
    #CheersToTheOceanUK for the United Kingdom
    #CheersToTheOceanIT for Italy
    #CheersToTheOceanFR for France
    #CheersToTheOceanES for Spain
    #CheersToTheOceanDE for Germany
  1. 3. Share with friends



Participation in the Contest is permitted to any person over the age of 18 and resident in the following countries: the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Participation will require Participants to post a picture on their Twitter account, representing their love for the ocean. The picture will have to include glass, and the post has to include a caption explaining their interest in participating in the Contest. One person per country will be selected as winner, for a total of five winners. Winners will be informed in January 2019.
