Marine Conservation Society:
Our iconic annual Great British Beach Clean has been leading the way in tackling ocean pollution for 26 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 we’ve picked up 319 tonnes of litter at our Great British Beach Cleans.
This September we’re running the Great British Beach Clean for a week of citizen science from 18th – 25th September 2020. Like many events, this year the Great British Beach Clean looks a little different. Rather than encouraging volunteers to find a beach clean happening near them, we’re calling on individuals to adopt a 100m stretch of beach and organise their own beach cleans, with smaller groups of friends, family and ‘bubbles’, in line with government guidance.
