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.

MCS is partnering with Waitrose this year to organise… CleanUp

We’re running hundreds of clean-up events during our famous Great British Beach Clean weekend from Friday 15 to Monday 18 September with loads more taking place throughout the year.

Anyone can volunteer, so get involved at an event near you!

Did you know?…

We removed 568,000 pieces of litter from our coasts in one year

To date, our beach cleans have removed 6 million pieces of litter

Over time, one plastic bottle bobbing along in the ocean can break down in to hundreds of tiny plastic pieces
