Last year we collected 60,000 nurdles and biobeads which were recyced into mobile phone cases. We are aiming to collect another 60,000 which also helps clean the beach and protect our local wildlife! 

We will provide pots and gloves (you can bring along your own). Flat end wooden tongs also help to pick up the tiny microplatsics, if you wish to bring any. A kneeler also helps! 

Also worth knowing…

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
