The Great British Beach Clean

Watch out for the Great British Beach Clean, coming to a beach near you, from 19th to 22nd September 2014.

With your help the Marine Conservation Society can take Britain’s beaches back to a time when litter was the exception and not the rule. They’re aiming to get a record breaking 10,000 people cleaning at least 400 beaches around the UK. 

It's a real and growing problem. Last year the South West had well below the national average in terms of litter levels, even though in last year’s beach clean more items of litter were found per kilometre of beach cleaned than ever before. The Marine Conservation Society makes a compelling case for clean beaches:
  • Clean beaches could save the lives of some of our best-loved marine wildlife.
  • Clean beaches will protect our kids when they are building sand castles.
  • Clean beaches will show the world what's really great about the British seaside.
Register now for the Great British Beach Clean and let's get our beaches back to their litter-free glory days!

No event organised on your favourite beach? Then why not organise a clean up of your own?
