The Marine Conservation Society have let us know of several local beach cleans coming up with our students eager to help!

The Great British Beach Clean runs from 20th - 23rd September 2019

The iconic annual Great British Beach Clean has been leading the way in tackling ocean pollution for 25 years, helping make some of the most significant impacts on beach litter ever - the plastic bag charge, banning microplastics in personal care products, better wet wipe labelling, and supporting a tax on single-use plastic items.

So far 319 tonnes of litter have been picked up at the Great British Beach Cleans. 

Help to make 2019 the biggest clean-up ever!
