Big Beach Clean-up

the annual spring clean 7th to 13th May 2015

Thank you to everyone who took part

Over 6000 of you joined us this spring for our fourth national Big Beach Clean-up! You helped us clean 136 beaches and waterways removing an incredible 40 tonnes of litter from the beaches ready for the summer. Marine litter is a problem that we can all play a part in solving, and what better way to start than with a day at the beach.

So much more than just picking litter, our volunteers have also contributed to our national litter survey, and met others from their community who want to help protect their local environment.

If you couldn't make the Big Beach Clean up or you would like to do another beach clean, you can take part in one of the many beach cleans that are happening all around the country. Simply visit to find out more. And don't forget to join us for the Great British Beach Clean event during the 3rd weekend of September!
