Why is beach cleaning so important?
Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. Litter on our beaches is also hazardous to people so we all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter.

“The Marine Conservation Society has published a beautiful-looking report that contains some extremely concerning results. Do take a look at the results of its annual Beachwatch event.” Bill Bryson, author and litter activist, May 2011
