Announcing our competition winner

This summer, we asked budding artists and little eco-warriors to unleash their creativity and draw an ocean-inspired cover for our glass bottles. 

Why? Because we believe future generations have the power to create a greener future. So, who better to design the packaging that prevents tonnes of plastic from entering the ocean? 

A huge thank you to everyone who took part 

We know, we know: get to the point and reveal our winner. But we can’t do that without first thanking every single child, teacher, parent, supervisor, babysitter and more for taking part in our competition, including those who voted. 

Our kids’ contest set out to send a message to the older generations, urging them to help protect the planet we call home. It’s safe to say, every one of your entries achieved that and so much more. 

Our contest aimed to help kids beat eco-anxiety. urging them to get their creative juices flowing and send a message to the older generations about protecting our planet. And we’ve been blown away by everyone’s magnificent artwork.  

We hope your children enjoyed making their designs as much as we’ve enjoyed seeing them. Frankly, we were almost hoping 99% of entrees were rubbish, simply to make picking a winner easier. But you’ve all made it very difficult!  

And our winner is… 

You’re all winners in our eyes. But there can be only one design for our new glass bottles. So, drumroll please… 

Congratulations to Bella-Rae, aged seven, for this awesome artwork about keeping our oceans safe. A message we can all get behind.
