Employee engagement

If you’re considering a company day out, why not get involved with an outdoor activity that is great for bonding and brilliant for the environment? MCS can offer you a volunteering opportunity that could be the start of something longer lasting.

Escape the office and get down to the beach!

Marine litter is not only unsightly and dangerous to humans but it can also harm wildlife through entanglement and ingestion.

By doing a beach clean and survey with your work colleagues, you’ll be taking part in the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK. Our MCS Pollution team uses the information gathered by volunteers to establish where the litter has come from and how it can be tackled at source.

What’s included?
