We’re partnering with Waitrose this year to organise hundreds of clean-up events on beaches and rivers.

Every minute,
one truckload of plastic
ends up in our oceans.
This has to stop.

Did you know?…

UK seas and shores are places for leisure, sport, and holiday destination for millions annually

Every day millions of microplastics enter the sea from personal care products such as scrubs and toothpastes

Plastic has been found in the stomachs of almost all marine species including fish, birds, whales, dolphins, seals and turtles
