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.

To date, our beach cleans have removed over 11 million pieces of litter

It’s estimated that one rubbish truck load of plastic litter enters the ocean every minute
