For Immediate Release
Australian-owned natural health care company Nutricare and Australian Sailing have announced that they will be working together over the next three years to promote the importance of sustainability in sailing clubs around Australia through alignment with their flagship brands PATCH and STRAP.
The partnership will see Nutricare become a Major Partner of Australian Sailing’s Tackers program. Tackers is aimed at introducing children aged 7 to 12 to sailing in a fun, safe, accessible and affordable way.
“We are delighted to be working with another proudly Australian organisation who share our passion for ensuring clean and safe waterways for generations of sailors to come,” said Australian Sailing CEO Ben Houston at the announcement.
“This partnership covers the breadth of our sport, with their support stretching from our flagship junior participation program to the strapping our Australian Sailing Team athletes will be wearing when they represent our country all over the world.”
PATCH by Nutricare is a natural bamboo fibre wound dressing and is the world’s first truly hypoallergenic and 100% compostable wound care product. STRAP, the second brand by Nutricare is to be launched mid 2021, as the world’s first eco bamboo sports strapping tape.
From Nutricare founder and CEO James Dutton: “I started PATCH out of a desire to help my family access everyday sustainable and non-irritating products. Here at Nutricare we are passionate about enabling every household globally, to do the same. This partnership is the perfect embodiment of two organisations tied through their love of nature and the environment, and we are thrilled at the opportunity to work so closely both with the Australian Sailing Team and those just beginning their sailing journey.
“Australians are by nature an active and adventurous lot. Bumps and bruises come with the territory, and we want to ensure that when those wounds need some care that they are done in an environmentally friendly way – which is where PATCH by Nutricare comes in.”
The partnership was sealed with the assistance of The Partner Group and their Managing Director Scott Llewelyn. The Partner Group will remain active in the relationship as they work to deliver valuable change by providing dynamic business solutions.
The Australian Sailing Team are recognised as one of the world’s leading sailing teams, and they will carry the Nutricare logo from 2021, with a number of athletes set to be announced as ambassadors for the partnership.
The partnership will also assist more that eighty Tackers Centres around the country, with each club being offered a half-price registration for the next Instructor course they purchase. The initiative is thanks to Nutricare and aims to break down some of the barriers to getting more qualified Instructors in clubs leading our next generation of sailing stars.
