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?…

Since the carrier bag charge came in across the UK, the Great British Beach Clean has recorded almost 50% fewer bags on beaches

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is thought to be 6 times the size of the UK

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