You may have noticed a lot of Nivea bottles washed up on the beaches this winter which turn out to be from a container lost about a year ago. they came to the attention of Martin Dorey in Cornwall who contacted Nivea about it which you can read about here: I got in touch with Martin to compare notes and today received this:

“Hey Gerard,

 Just to let you know that Nivea have agreed to make a lump sum donation to The Marine Conservation Society as some kind of ‘compensation’ for the spillage of bottles. They are also keeping an eye on what turns up so keep ‘em coming.  I am sure your picture was instrumental in convincing them to act so well done and thanks.
