Children litter picking during Great British Beach Clean 2020 Kate Whitton

Help us stop ocean pollution in its tracks wherever you are

Did you know that 80% of the litter found on beaches travelled there from our towns, parks and rivers?

You can do your bit and raise awareness of the issue with your young people, even if you can't get to the beach.

Originally launched in 2020 to coincide with the Great British Beach Clean, the Source to Sea Litter Quest can be done anytime, anywhere.
