MCS litter campaigns and policy

We are taking action to reduce litter at its source - getting people involved in surveys of beach litter, taking our evidence to governers and policy makers, and targeting specific types of pollution.

There are several campaign actions you can take to help us:

Break the Bag Habit  - Help stop single-use carrier bags blighting our beaches and countryside. 

Don't Let Go – What goes up must come down! Help us stop balloons and sky lanterns killing wildlife.

Microplastics - What's in your scrub? Download the microbead App and sign the petition for an EU ban on microplastics in consumer products.

Hang on to your Tackle - Encourage anglers to put their fishing litter in special bins around the coast.
